Notice to Superior Beads customers,

I am in my 18th year of business now. I have been giving this a lot of thought and have now decided it is time for me to retire from the bead business. It took me some time to make this decision because I have enjoyed almost every day here at the store. I have become friends with many of you over the years and I know I will miss all of you. But I also know that there is a lot to see and do in this world and I want to take the time to explore new places, experiences and people. It seems like the right time to start that journey.

During the month of February I will be having a retirement, store closing sale. Starting February 1, all beads and beading supplies will be on sale for 25% off. I have a good selection of beads, base metal findings, stones, magazines, sterling and gold filled findings, needles, threads, tools, everything that has to do with beading. So come for the sale early for the best selection.

Each week in February I will increase the discount. I expect during the last week of February the discount will be up to 75% off. With this closing sale, I expect things to sell fast. I will not be ordering any new merchandise starting February 1. Once an item is sold out, it will no longer be available. You can expect to receive additional emails from me during the month letting you know how the sale is going and what the latest discount is.

I want to again thank you for your support of Superior Beads! Janet and I were just talking yesterday about all the years here, the people we have met and the experiences we've had starting and running Superior Beads for 18 years. I am sad in many ways about closing the store. I am also excited for the future. Stop in and take advantage of this retirement sale. Business might end but friendships last forever!

Best wishes, George Lokken
