BOSTON — You might not be the first person to hear of this store in Boston.
But for some, it’s a real option for getting stationery for a fraction of what you would pay at the local department store.
The store has more than 10,000 items including everything from stationery to wedding bands and baby gifts.
But most importantly, the store offers more than 30,000 styles of stationery including a wide variety of paper, pencil, marker and marker pens, along with a variety of colors.
“Our mission is to offer a wide range of stationers and stationery that are made in the USA and with the best customer service in the business,” said John Miller, the company’s co-founder and CEO.
“It’s not just about looking great.
It’s about the customer service and that is something we’re striving for.”
We want to keep things simple and we want to be a little bit more thoughtful in the process of getting the stuff in front of our customers,” Miller said.
For years, this was the only place you could get stationery from the United States and now, with Amazon’s acquisition of The Pencil Store in New York City, the business is thriving and expanding.
The Pencil Shop, which was established in 2010, is located in a former paper mill in a working-class neighborhood in East Boston.
It offers items from pen and ink to stationery, stationery accessories, and stationer boxes.
But the real value of the business comes from its products, Miller said, adding that he expects sales to reach more than $1 million a year by the end of this year.
The company has been around since 2011, and it has grown quickly over the years, Miller told ABC News.”
It has grown to become a national phenomenon.””
We have a couple of stores that are in the Boston area.
It has grown to become a national phenomenon.”
The Penlons store sells everything from paper to stationer accessories.
It is located on the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and South Boston Street in the heart of East Boston and has locations in all 50 states and Canada.
Miller said he has had customers tell him about the service they have gotten from the shop.
“There are people who say, ‘I don’t know if I will ever be able to do this, I would love to do it but it’s just not practical,'” Miller said with a laugh.
Miller told ABCNews.com that one customer came in with a stationer box full of stationer pens and asked him if he would make a stationery box for her, saying she didn’t have any paper to put in the box.
Miller replied, “Sure, I will make a box for you.
Just send me the paper.””
We’re a little different from most stationser shops,” Miller added.
“The customer service is really what we’re really focused on.”
He said he wants the company to grow even more and expand beyond the Massachusetts Avenue location to other neighborhoods.
The idea for The Penlions began after his sister told him about a customer who had purchased a station that was out of stock at a local department-store, Miller recalled.
The customer called and said, ‘You can’t find this at my local store.
Can you sell it to me?’
“Miller said he told her the price and asked if she could do a trial run.
She agreed to send the customer a picture of the station she was looking for and then asked him to bring the item back to the store to see if it would work.
The customers reaction was so positive, that she asked Miller to buy the item and she made him the original purchase, he said, noting that the customer who bought it, who has since moved out of the area, called the store again to say they had received the item.
Miller explained the process:The PenLions is a great company to work for and to be in a position to be successful, he added.
The company, which opened in February 2018, was founded by two men and one woman, Miller and Mike D’Antonio.
The founders are also the two men who ran the Penlans.
They say the idea for the business came to them when they were in high school and were looking for ways to save money, Miller explained.
The founders have worked at local businesses like The Penlight, which they started in 2015, and now The Pen Luggage.
They also have a second store, The Pen and Ink Machine, in the East Boston area, Miller also said.
The business grew quickly and now has 10 employees, Miller added, with the store also serving a small market in Boston’s South End.”
The business is also growing, with Miller saying it now has”
What we’re trying to do is create an opportunity for the small businesses that have really struggled.”
