After 18 years of doing business, an Albuquerque store says goodbye

Gatherings store

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – After more than 18 years of business, a locally-owned stationary and gift shop is closing its doors.

Gatherings, a store near Montgomery and Eubank, opened in 1997. The store says more people are turning to the internet now for similar services.

Today they said goodbye to their customers.

“As one lady put it I just wanted to see if i could find one last thing to remember you by,” said Sarah Youtz, an employee at Gatherings.

The shopping center where Gatherings was located recently lost a Starbucks as well. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
