A spokesperson for Schurman Retail Group, told Cleveland.com that the majority of Papyrus stores will close in the next few weeks.

If your local Papyrus store is still open, it would be a good idea to visit it as soon as you can. You are likely to find that the products will be offered at a big discount. It is common for stores that are closing to try and sell off the remaining products as fast as possible so they don’t have to deal with excess stock after the closure.
