The Right Card 's mission is social connection. Our tagline is "greetings, gifts, gatherings" for a reason. Through greeting cards and gifts, we help you express your thoughts and stay in touch with friends, family, and colleagues. Through gatherings, we build shared experience and community.
This year marks 35 years of The Right Card being a staple to Old Town Fort Collins. We had hoped to be celebrating all year with parties and sales for the people that have made it possible, our amazing customers and fans. Unfortunately, the universe seems to have had other plans for not only The Right Card, but for the entire community and world at once. All of a sudden, it became a lot less about us as a store and a lot more about Us as a community taking care of each other.
Like so many small businesses that were struggling before Covid-19, the shut-downs and restrictions made it seemingly impossible overnight to look positively toward the future. Instead of throwing up our hands in defeat, we set them to work creating a new business model--introducing online ordering and multiple shipping options that not only kept our business alive in a safe and socially responsible way, but gave us a glimmer of hope that we could continue!
However, we were still left with the problem of rent that we could no longer sustain in a location that we loved and the challenge of where we would move. Would we go strictly online? Switch to a pop-up shop? What would any of that look like?
Then the clouds opened up and Walnut Creek appeared as a shiny beacon of hope! After some negotiations, we decided that joining forces could be a fantastic fit! Women-owned businesses supporting other women-owned businesses in a community co-op setting. Whats not to be enthusiastic about in that situation?!
We hope to be in our new location in the Stone Room of Walnut Creek by June 1 and offering in person shopping by appointment shortly after. While the space is much smaller than our current 3,000 sqft, we plan to continue carrying the amazing selection of cards that we are known for as well as gift wrap, journals, some art supplies and a selection of novelty gift items.
In order to make this transition smoother (and reduce the amount of awesome stuff we have to move or put in storage) we are selling off our current inventory at a discount of 50% or more over the Memorial Day weekend! We have carefully mapped out the store to maximize social-distancing, sanitation practices and experience through directional shopping so you can browse our incredible Moving Sale with confidence! Shop from 11-4 May 22-25!
Until then, our current location is open from 12-4pm daily for curbside pickup and limited in-person shopping. To help us ensure that we are following social distancing and sanitation guidelines to keep both our customers and staff safe and healthy, we are offering appointments for in-store shopping that can be scheduled through our shop page.
Speaking of shop page, we will continue to offer a selection of the unique cards and quirky gifts to our online store. Browse online from the comfort and safety of your couch. New items are being added all the time!
We are offering No-Contact Local Porch Delivery, Curbside Pickup at our Old Town location and shipping to the US and Canada.
Sending you our best,
The Right Card
We love cards! They help people experience and communicate emotions in ways we can’t always come up with on our own. Whether you are looking for a card to celebrate a special occasion, holiday, or just say "hi," you can probably find one that expresses your feelings. Our huge selection of curated cards from sweet to snarky has you covered. Make sure to check out our selection of cards by local Colorado artists and amazing small companies that you won’t find in big box stores.
We are known for our quirky humor and eclectic mix of gifts. We strive to stock items you don't see everywhere and to make the place fun to explore.
We love it when you laugh and smile!
Every day we hear customers call their friends over to see what they've found. We stock our shelves with things you’ll be happy to give. Whether you are looking for a nifty Colorado souvenir, beautiful journal, funny book, adorable stuffed animal, snarky desk sign, and all things in between, we have you covered.
Regretfully, we have to stop for now. It is important to keep our social distance to keep our community healthy. Check for virtual events in the coming days ...
****** We will resume when we can ******
