The Paper Store

It all started with a small newspaper stand in Maynard, MA in 1964 – established by our founder, Bob Anderson. Over the years The Paper Store has responded to what our local communities need and continues to evolve with our customers’ shopping habits – while at the same time, staying true to our brand. Hence, why we remain named “The Paper Store.”

The Paper Store is the largest family-owned and operated specialty gift business in the Northeast. Today, the Anderson family operates over 80 stores throughout the Northeast – and a thriving ecommerce business -- with over 3,000 employees who make The Paper Store “tick.” Our team works diligently to offer guests a unique shopping experience where they can find a unique gift for any occasion.

Our departments include fashion, accessories, spa, home décor, stationery, jewelry, sports and more from brands like Vera Bradley, Lilly Pulitzer, ALEX AND ANI, Life is Good, Vineyard Vines and Ivory Ella. We’re always listening for what’s new and important to our customers – and our family of brands continues to grow every day. Plus, The Paper Store is a proud Hallmark partner, which ties in to the backbone of our company’s mission -- to commit and provide stellar service to all Hallmark Gold Crown customers and provide the offerings they know and expect from Hallmark. We are dedicated to providing this connection as part of the seamless, inspirational and fun experience our guests enjoy in all our stores, online and beyond.”

In 2020 The Paper Store (formerly known as The Paper Store, LLC) was sold and a new business entity was formed. The company operates now as TPS Group Holdings, LLC utilizing The Paper Store brand name consumers have grown to recognize. The Anderson family proudly remains in the business driving the strategy, sales and daily execution of the business.

Charitable Commitments

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.
