The Paper Store is the largest family owned and operated chain of specialty gift stores in the Northeast. Our goal is to be the premier destination for your gift-giving needs. Our business began in 1964 when Bob and Peggy Anderson purchased the first store in Maynard, MA. Originally a stationery store, The Paper Store has evolved into a sophisticated and diverse operation. You can now shop for gifts, social expressions, fashion & jewelry, bath & body, home décor, baby fashion, educational toys & games, gourmet foods, bestselling books, and much more! Currently, seven family members – as well as a myriad of spouses, cousins and friends – all work together to analyze retail trends and bring you high-value items from the world’s finest brands. Our stores are staffed with well-trained Associates who are happy to help customers find the perfect gift. A group of very talented people work to make the atmosphere in our stores beautiful, organized and a pleasure to shop.

ESG/Ethical Impact

The Paper Store’s new ‘Signature Stores’ embody a bold new vision for the brand. These innovative stores are nearly twice the size of the Company’s average store, with 12,000 sq feet dedicated to the latest brands and unique products, spanning fashion, home accents, gourmet food, kids’ toys & games and so much more. From the glowing sconces that welcome consumers throughout the store, to the colorful displays – the Signature Stores feel fresh and boutique-like. The new store format caters to Consumers’ appetite for immersive storytelling moments. The Signature Stores were designed with this in mind, showcasing displays with an aspirational, lifestyle-first approach, and also offering areas that allow customers to engage in hands-on, interactive activities. These include ear piercing services, a children’s play area, a whimsical candy station where customers can mix and match their favorite sweets, food tastings, and local community-based charity events. To take a virtual tour of our Bellingham, MA Signature Store, watch the video below. The Paper Store is passionate about helping the surrounding towns in which our guests and employees live, work and play. We are proud to have raised over $2,000,000 for charity and to sell products that have charitable tie-ins. The Paper Store directly supports various organizations such as Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston Children’s Hospital, local school districts, shelters and food pantries, and local first responders. The Paper Store continues to support our communities thru the donation of over 10,000 masks, thousands of bottles of hand sanitizer and other supplies to support those working to keep us all safe and healthy during the pandemic. Due to our existing partnerships, we are not able to accommodate other charitable or fundraising requests at this time.
