Jerry’s Artarama of Hartford, CT celebrates its 25th anniversary! Owners Jeff and Susan Shoham were featured in the Hartford Courant in an article that details their incredible journey, from building their business from the ground up to becoming a community staple as the go-to art supply store for creative endeavors in Elmwood. They celebrated the big 25 with a 25% off sale over the weekend, door prizes and of course, cake.

When thinking back on the the years of hard work that brought the business to where it is today, Jeff reflected on the rewarding moments that make everything worth it.

“Talking with customers. My time is limited, but I love being on the floor, still. Especially the students… to see them come in as freshmen, you see them develop over the years.”

When we take a moment to celebrate anniversaries, it’s not only a chance to reflect on our accomplishments and progress… it is a way to connect with community and strengthen relationships with customers.

One woman at Jerry’s Artarama’s 25th celebration came up to shake Jeff’s hand: she had been at the store the day it opened and had watched the store evolve and change… for all 25 years. We are looking forward to celebrating more anniversaries with our retailers!
