We have enjoyed every one of our 30 years, but it is time for us to say goodbye to the pink corner shop in Archway. The lead story this week is that our lease is almost up, and we have decided not to renew.
No heavy hearts here, we have kept smiling through many uncertain times, celebrated the friendship and loyalty of our amazing customers, particularly during the pandemic when we needed you most. We're leaving on a high after an all-time record day on Christmas Eve and our best ever Mother's Day, thank you, your continued and enthusiastic support has meant the world to us. We will miss you as much as you'll miss us.
It was the hardest decision we have had to make so far, but all good things must come to an end sometime, and we have decided that for us the time is now. It feels good to be in control, and we'd love it if you would come with us on our next adventure.
Our online shop Map Gift Shop will grow and thrive with renewed energy and we will be popping up with big surprises along the way.....you'll have to watch this space.
Our last official day of trading at number 93, will be Saturday 17th June, so you can squeeze in your gifts and cards for Father's Day on June 18th.
How lucky we are to have had something so good and for so long, that makes saying goodbye so hard.
We'd love to say thank you in person, so if you have time to pop by - share a story and maybe let us take a pic for our wall of fame then please do come soon

With warmest wishes
