What an amazing two months we have just had at Notables! From the time we announced our store closing at the end of February, we have seen hundreds and hundreds of our life long customers through the doors – all so sad for the end of an Edmonton institution, but happy for Suzanne and the excitement of her “Moving On” to new life adventures. We are filled with gratitude for all of the warm words we have heard.

The store is nearly empty, but there are still some great bargains to be had on 8 1/2″ x 11″ stationery and envelopes, greeting cards and fixtures. For store owners – there are acrylics, shelving units, hooks and more. We also have some large magnetic frames, a desk and other interesting goodies.

Our last day will be Saturday, May 17, 2014. Please join us Thursday evening, May 15, from 6 till 8, to toast farewell. All customers, suppliers, staff past and present – we would love to see you.

Wishing you all the best and thanking you for your many wonderful years of support.

Our Amazing Customers

Sale Day Line Up

Wow! What an amazing start to our Moving On Sale. Customers arrived before 8:15 in the morning and the line up outside went all the way to Cloud Nine Pajamas. Thank you sunshine for finally coming out and shining your light on us all day!Thank you Starbucks! I hear you passed out treats to those in line. Ted and Chloe manned and dogged the door, entertaining customers all day. Once inside, there were still lineups – at the pen counter, at the cash desk – but all of our customers were amazing, patient and happily made new friends in line! Our staff were heroes on the floor, barely taking a break and running their feet off. It was the most incredible day to witness and be a part of.

We moved a lot of inventory, the busiest day in our history, but still have lots more to go. There are many great purchases to be had. Regular store hours continue Monday through Saturday until we close sometime mid to late May. All fixtures and equipment in the store are for sale as well. Please inquire.

Notables is Moving On Poster

The Sale Begins!
As most of you have already heard, Notables Stationers in Edmonton will be closing by the end of May as Suzanne is retiring after 28 years! Our customers are all very sad, but have shown us so much amazing love and gratitude these last few weeks. We are very thankful for and to each and everyone of you.

How will this unfold? The sale begins on Saturday morning, April 19 at 10 am. Yes – at that time and at that time only, whatever is left in the store (we have been busy, busy) will be put on sale. All fixtures and equipment will be available for purchase as well. Please make sure to use all outstanding gift certificates, credit notes and loyalty points by the end of April.

What about invitations? As of March 31, 2014, we stopped taking invitation orders in store. We are looking at referrals and other methods so as not to leave our customers “in the dark”. There may also be the possibility of some continuation of service. We will update our website with further information.

My pen is broken, what do I do? We will be listing referral stores in Edmonton for pen refills and repairs on our website. We will also be listing our repair depot information.

We are still here and open for business! Please call or email us with any questions or concerns. Ask for Suzanne. The phone line will be disconnected at the end of May, but I will still be more than happy to answer any questions via email after that time.

With much gratitude and many fond memories,

We will be open Good Friday and Easter Holiday Monday from 10 – 5:30. We will be closed all Sundays in April, open 10 – 5:30, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, late night till 8 on Thursdays.

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
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.

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

Notable Happenings in February

Love is in the Air!

We think Edmonton deserves some excitement instead of all this cold! Read on to see what we have in store for you this month…
Valentine’s Day is just a few short days away – (reminder – this coming Friday!!) and we have lots of wonderful cards and gift ideas. All things “heart” from Thomas Sabo are 40% off till February 14. Who wouldn’t love a little bling?
A little chocolate is a very important food group in most women’s food guide and we have some yummy, Canadian made, chocolate hearts for your sweetie. The best selection of cards in town? Where else?

Keep Warm – Think Spring

Who doesn’t love a party? A fun way to keep warm is to think spring and start planning for a spring party!  We have some lovely spring invitations, both fill-ins and ones that you can print yourself in stock  – AND – they are all marked half price! A little peek.

Winter Travel

Lug Kids! How cute is this? The new Lug  (lots more than just for kids) has just walked in the door and the kids stuff is adorable – Peekaboo Bag Tags, Hokey Pokey Backpack and the Choo Choo Lunch Tote. For adults, there is a delicious new color – cranberry.

We don’t blame you if you are planning a few weeks away from home. We’d love to get away from this cold too. Before you do, be sure to stockup on all of your traveling essentials! Lug passport holders and flatiron cases are just a few items that we never leave on a trip without.Bon voyage with a journal to document your winter getaway. With choices from Moleskine and Leuchtturm notebooks to Phasha leather bound journals, any of our stylish notebooks will be great for your thoughts, memories and stories along the way. And don’t forget a wonderful pen for all of that jotting!

Family Day Hours: We will be closed, Sunday, February 16 and Monday, February 17 to let our staff enjoy some family time.
