Retail Store


It's the end of an era...


That's how a customer put it when found out the Store would be closing in December.


And it really does feel that way - we opened the Essential Packaging Store way back in 1998,

at a time when such a concept didn't exist.


We created the EP Store to meet the demands of small business owners who simply couldn't get

the packaging products they needed in smaller quantities.


It didn't take long for news of our packaging store to spread -

in no time we saw a steady stream of small businesses, retailers, crafts people, schools,

organizations, special event coordinators and brides come through our doors.


However, as the world continues to change and evolve after the pandemic, so must we.


The Essential Packaging Store will be CLOSING.

Our last day will be Saturday, December 16th, 2023.

To clarify, just our current retail Store location will close -

our Custom Branding division will still continue AND many of

our packaging products will still be available online through our website.

If you have any questions about the closing or any other matter, please reach out to us

at 604-575-1117 or email us at Thank you!


We're open to the public

Monday - Friday 10:00am - 4:00pm

Closed Sundays and holidays
