Earlier this afternoon, owner Jasmine Clemmons announced on the store's Facebook Page that it would soon be closing down for good.
Clemmons wrote the following in her announcement:
It is with a very sad heart that I announce the closing of Jazzy Crafts on June 30, 2012. When I opened the store April 20, 2008 with the help of my family; Scott, Julie, Justin, Amanda and Cameron, I had high hopes that this day would never come. Unfortunately, due to the economic downturn, the construction on Castro Valley Blvd and lower than expected local support, I'm unable to keep Jazzy Crafts open.
I will miss all of my customers and the wonderful friendships I've made with so many of you. As we close down the brick & mortar portion of our business, you can continue to expect the same high level of service that you are accustomed to from us.
She goes on to say that everything in the store will now be on sale and additional markdowns may be added.
Her recently-added online store, www.jazzycrafts.com, will remain open and she will post remaining products on the website once the brick and mortar store closes its doors. You can make purchases through PayPal and she will ship the items to you or deliver them personally if you live in or near Castro Valley.
According to the announcement, gift cards and store credits will continue to be honored at the store and online. Living Social vouchers will also be honored at their face value for classes and products.
The store's frequent buyer coupons will continue to honored through June 30. However, points can no longer be accumulated due to everything going on sale.
