TOWN OF BROOKFIELD – Arts, crafts, gifts and class.
Those things and much more await patrons at the newest business to open its doors at The Corners, Paper Source.
"This is our third one in Wisconsin. We do a lot of giftables, we do a lot of crafting," Paper Source Manager Zsanelle Stanfield said. "Crafting is a big part of our business. People will come in for their wedding invitations and things like that."
The premier paper store opened to the public Friday, May 19. Paper Source offers a unique selection of gifts, paper, cards, stationery and classes and workshops.
After years of anticipation, The Corners in the town of Brookfield finally opened Saturday. Hundreds of shoppers waited in line for the occasion. Wochit
"We have a few workshops coming up in June. The company sends us workshops, like a hand-lettering class so people can design their own cake toppers or things like that," Stanfield said.
Paper Source also has space available to be rented out.
"We do private parties. So if someone wanted to do a birthday party or like a girls get-together, we do that," Stanfield said.
So far, Stanfield said that traffic at the store has been "fantastic."
"Everybody's just excited for the variety of products that we have," Stanfield said.
The Corners Marketing Manager Chelsea Roessler spoke highly of Paper Source last week ahead of its opening.
"This unique store will offer guests the opportunity to embrace their creative side with a wonderful array of products and special events,” Roessler said.
Paper Source was founded in 1983 and operates 114 retail store locations in addition to an e-commerce store and wholesale division. For more information, go to www.papersource.com.
