PHOENIX — Papyrus, a store known for its greeting cards and stationery, announced last week it is closing all of its stores, including three in the Phoenix area.

“We hope that … we were able to inspire you to celebrate and honor the special people in your lives, creating meaningful moments along the way,” the Tennessee-based company said in a Twitter post on Jan. 23.

One store is in Phoenix near Camelback Road and 24th Street. The other two are in Scottsdale: one in Kierland Commons and the other in Scottsdale Fashion Square.

A fourth Arizona store is in Tucson.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the company filed for bankruptcy the day it announced the closures.

The Journal reported Papyrus has more than 250 stores across the country and plans to end operations by the end of next month.

Two Valley employees told KTAR News 92.3 FM their stores were expected to close in four to six weeks but they didn’t have an exact date.

The store’s website was unavailable as of Wednesday.
