I'm happy to report that BOTH stores fared out just fine through Gustav, as did our home and Emery's apartment.
Felix and I are in the Mandeville store today, and the store is open as usual for business. We received nine (9) boxes of new inventory today, so we're pretty busy putting things back together after having packed everything away safely to survive the storm, as well as inputting new inventory and putting that out.
The Metairie store will reopen on Monday, September 8th at 10:00 AM. Emery went to the Metairie store and said the entire parking lot is completely filled up with Breaux Mart customers who are returning and trying to restock their food supply, and who cannot find parking in the Breaux Mart parking lot.
If anyone needs anything in the meanwhile, please call the Mandeville store and we will see how we can get it to you. I know right now the kids are probably stir-crazy and have you climbing the walls, and papercrafting would be a good thing to occupy their time (as well as yours) while waiting for things to return to normal. If you can make it to the Mandeville store, we have some kits available that have everything you need in them, including the adhesive.
Please do e-mail us at Scrappersaurus@Yahoo.com or call us to let us know you are okay. You may think you are just "Customers" to us, but we actually consider each and every one of you "Family", and are concerned about you. Let us know if we can help with anything.
Take care, stay safe, and stay in touch.
Until next time, happy scrapping!
