Margate business is not immune to the chaos of 2020. The popular Paper Chase shop next to Casel’s Market on Ventnor Ave has announced they’ll close for good by the end of January 2021. Read their email to customers:
It is with great disappointment and sorrow that this, our 27th holiday season at Paper Chase, will be our last. It has been a wonderful run. We have enjoyed every minute of doing business with all of you, our amazing customers and have made many meaningful friendships along the way. Unfortunately, we have had a challenging few years made even harder by the pandemic, and we have no choice but to close. We will be closing our doors in mid to late January.
Elly Bea: Yes. We are closing mid to late January. That does not mean supply is low. We still have amazing gift items for the holidays so come by and shop small!
Janie Feldman started Paper Chase as a home-based business in Margate shortly after her first daughter was born in 1978. Janie quickly developed a local following that came to depend on her attention to detail and uncompromised personal customer service.
After 17 years of selling invitations, stationery and personalized gifts from her home, and with her two daughters nearly grown, Janie realized her dream of opening her own store.
On Memorial Day weekend of 1994, Janie opened the 1700 square foot Paper Chase on Atlantic Avenue in Margate.
The business grew and, in 2000, Paper Chase expanded to its present location at 8000 Ventnor Avenue in Margate.
The shop is a sparkling jewel where one can find beautiful tabletop and home accessories, jewelry, gift wares, leather goods, china, crystal, picture frames, kid stuff, personalized gifts, and high-quality invitations for any occasion.
Lamberti’s on Amherst Ave in Margate
After many months of downtime, construction crews are back. Work has ramped back up on the all new, Lamberti’s Restaurant on the Margate bayfront. Amherst Ave.
A massive structure and well-known name that’ll benefit from the publicly funded Amherst promenade and soon-to-be roadway reduction to one-way only.
