Paper pursuit prepares to close forever as it hosts its last day of trading today, April 3.

To commemorate the closing, shoppers can get in-person 80% off all stock, since the stationery store’s website already stopped trading.

The sale started as a 20% discount, which then increased to 50%, 70%, and finally 80% off all products.

You can pick up items such as lined notebooks that were once £8 for £1.60 and all cards are now selling for 10p each.

You can still use the store locator on the Paperchase website to check where your nearest one is.

Please note that all concession remains Next one and Selfridges stores are also closed.

Remember, you can still see the brand in Tesco stores, just can’t visit in person anymore.

The closures are accompanied by approximately 900 redundancies within the brand.

Paperchase opened its first store in 1968 in Kensington, London.

It comes as nearly 15,000 jobs have been cut since the start of the year as dozens of retailers collapsed or were restructured.

M&Co, MRS And Clintons are among the retailers affected by the closures and a few will even disappear this week.

For example, the Clintons in Fife are moving in on April 8 and M&S has moved into its Linthorpe Road branch Middelburg closes the following week on April 15.

It’s a branch that first opened over 100 years ago, so it’s quite a historic event.

However, M&S plans to open 104 more Foodhallen in the same period, so it’s not all bad news.

Many of the stores are expected to reopen in the same area or location as those earmarked for closure.

As for other closures, H&M has also announced a few – there will be at least two closures in Hartlepool and Isle of Wight lined up, but no dates have yet been confirmed.

Wetherspoon has too 32 pubs for sale – 13 of which are currently on offer but have not been confirmed to close.

This is because a buyer has made an offer that is being considered by the seller.

But it means the sale is not guaranteed and it can still remain open if not completed.
