FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Wallack’s announces new directions online with Nepean location closure
With nearly 80 years of serving artists in Ottawa proper, Wallack’s is making changes to reach customers far and wide.
OTTAWA, Ontario – June, 2016 Wallack’s Art Supplies, the leading source for fine art supplies to students and professionals in Ottawa since 1939, is making a move toward the future of retail. The company prides itself on having a pulse on the arts community and providing that community with the products and services essential to an arts practice. With this in mind, Wallack’s is now refocusing its vision in order to serve Ottawa and other communities outside the capital region in search of a quality resource for their art supply needs. “It became a matter of accessibility and reach” owner, Michael Wallack states, “we have customers from Killaloe to Kelowna, Nunavut to Nanaimo; we needed to take these customers into account when choosing our next move for the company and the customers’ benefit.”
The natural decision became turning the company’s focus to its online shop. Wallack’s will be continuing development of the online store in the coming weeks with new features to order product; offer customers a quick and convenient way to access their favorite creative goods; and earn loyalty program benefits/ discounts. In order for this refocus to occur Wallack’s will be closing the Nepean (Bells Corners) location, making the flagship location in Downtown Ottawa a community hub for customers to come in to try product, attend demos and learn about new brands. The closure of the brick and mortar Nepean location will be at the end of July.
“We have a wonderful legacy in the community; we want our customers who have stuck with us through the ups and downs of retail to know our first priority is to offer them products, knowledge and inspiration; and that includes the customers near and far from our physical roots” – Mr Michael Wallack, President Wallack’s Art Supplies
