It's a story of misconception...

Kim and I went to get some nests at the M store yesterday to finish a little bird theme we have going on in the back of the store. We found some Creative Imagination items that we carry here. We never really know what to think when the big "box stores" carry the same product as we (the little independent stores) do. When I looked at the price of these items my jaw dropped open. WHAT! How can they charge so much for this? So we purchased the same 3 items at the M store and also here at Mystic Paper. Guess what store had the better price? MYSTIC PAPER by $7.26! I can't tell you how many times a day we hear customers talking about what they just bought at the M store, because it was such a great deal, but I think it's all a facade. I decided to expose the facts- we have not only the product, but the receipts and the savings pointed out and it's all sitting on our front counter. I can say that I love a good deal, but over seven dollars difference! Seriously? Please come and check it out, that's all I'm saying.

Way to go Mystic Paper!!!! Wish that I was close and could shop there. Besides the great deals, the atmosphere is soooooo much greater than M's. Linda Albrecht
