Moving On

Moving On

After almost 28 years of providing our loyal customers with the best in greeting cards, gifts and custom invitations, Notables Stationers will be closing our doors at the end of May 2014.  Suzanne Davis, however, is looking forward to pursuing a new lifestyle. Okay – she is ready to retire!

Business as Usual
Business as usual will carry on until mid-April with fresh new inventory still arriving. We will then begin a Moving On Sale where all merchandise will be marked down and priced to go. This will be the perfect opportunity to pick up many great gifts for Mother’s Day, Graduation, Teacher Appreciation – something unique for all those special people in your life – all at significant savings. For those of you that are really organized – there will be amazing savings on all holiday merchandise (Christmas in May!). Get in early for best selection.
We will continue taking invitation orders in our bridal department until early April. Please make an appointment online at www.notables.ca
Keep an eye on our website/Facebook/Twitter feeds for further updates on sale date start.

Gift Certificates, Credit Notes and Loyalty Points
We want to ensure that all of our customers are taken care of over the next few months. Gift certificates, credit notes and loyalty points can all be redeemed until our closing in May. The loyalty program will be terminated immediately, but redemption of points will be available till store closing.

Being Grateful
From birth announcements to wedding invitations – you have invited Notables into your lives by letting us create your invitations – and for that, we are forever grateful. Little ones that came behind the counter to get their free stickers became trusted employees. Employees, sales reps and customers have become friends.
Moving on is bittersweet. Moving on is sad but also an exciting time with new opportunities for Suzanne personally and for the High Street. This spring and summer, the High Street will be welcoming three new businesses, wonderful additions to the 124 Street neighborhood that we all love.

Party
Keep in touch over the next few months to be updated on sale specials, closing date and THE PARTY! All customers, staff present and past, sales reps and suppliers are invited to celebrate a very special store in all of our lives. Please  join us!

 

We look forward to seeing you over the next few months!

Suzanne and the Team at Notables

  1. Congratulations! I hope that you enjoy retirement and have appreciated your store for many years.

    I’ll see you soon as I’ve got some loyalty points to use up!

    Regards,

    Scott

  2. So sad to here you are closing .. This is my favourite store. Love stationary.. Paper.. Good luck on the next part if your journey. I look forward to spending time in the store till you close the doors that last time. Thank you.

      • I could weep!! Simply weep! (Selfish I know!) Notables has seen me through 3 businesses (always proving that offices and business owners can have considerable glam and funk), dozens of parties, forays into self expression, playfulness and creativity. You upped my cool quotient and I shall miss you dearly. Enjoy your retirement-I know that you will fill your days with the same joy and panache that was Notables. Blessings to all!

  3. Nooooo!!!!! I can’t believe it!
    Your store is a staple and landmark for Highstreet and Edmonton. No other stationary store hold a candle.
    I shouldn’t be so selfish and should be happy for your retirement. But you’ll be missed..and your puppies too.
    All the best…I’ll be in to snap up some of the great merchandise that you always have.

  4. I can remember visiting your store when I was younger. You created an Edmonton landmark and will surely be missed. Suzanne – Best wishes for this new chapter of your life!

  5. Echo what has already been written. What a huge loss Notables will be to the Edmonton “Indie” scene. Darn it all, sadness! Happy retirement and at least I have notice to plan numerous trips before the official closing. All the best.

  6. I am terribly sad about this news as simply walking into your store never fails to inspire and excite me! I am always dreaming about the next pen I’m going to buy. Going into your store and handling the fountain pens and then choosing ink is such a joy. I will miss flipping whimsically through your little ink sample books. In spite of my own grief, I do recognize that all good things do come to a stage of completion – often, sooner than we’d like – and retirement is a great gift to the one who earns it. Best wishes in your retirement. I’ll be around to buy refills and a few new pens and journals while I still have the chance!

    • Corinne,
      Thank you so much for your beautiful words. Customers like you made Notables such a wonderful place to go to work every morning.
      Suzanne

  7. Congratulations on your retirement. I hope your talented, professional and dedicated Notables employees find many doors and opportunities opening for them. Brenda and her enthusiastic team will be huge assets to any employers looking for quality, experienced staff. Best wishes!

    • Lin, Thank you for the wonderful comments on our staff. I agree with you 100%! I hope you don’t mind that I share your words on Facebook as well.
      Suzanne
