Wright Museum and Black’s Paper and Gift Shop to Partner in October

In October, Black’s Paper and Gift Shop in Wolfeboro will offer 20% off its merchandise to anyone who shows a Wright Museum receipt for admission, dated October 1 to October 31, or their Wright Museum membership card.

The promotion is part of Wright Museum’s Business Partner program, which features one partnership each month in which the museum works with local businesses to enhance their respective offerings and promote one another. 

“Black’s has been an ardent supporter of ours through the years, and I am very pleased to work with them in this program,” said Mike Culver, museum executive director.

In return, The Wright will provide half-off admission for up to 2 people in one party with a Black’s Paper and Gift Shop receipt (minimum $10 purchase), dated October 1 – October 31. 

Started in 1860 as The Paper Store, the store became what is now known as Black’s Paper Store and Gift Shop in 1957 when George Black purchased it. The store changed hands a few times before still current owner Chris and Cindy Patten purchased it in 2007.

“Certainly, they are ones to appreciate history,” added Culver, who expressed gratitude at outgoing September partner, Burnt Timber Tavern. “It is important we work together any way we can to promote Wolfeboro, which makes this program pretty special.”

The region’s leading resource for educators and learners of all ages on World War II, the Wright Museum features more than 14,000 items in its collection that are representative of both the homefront and battlefield.
