Our Story

Metropolis was established in February of 1981 in the Phinney Ridge Neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. Metropolis is one of those unique stores that has charm, faithful customers and dedication to its community. From the beginning, Metropolis was customer focused and fun. Specializing in greeting cards, gifts, novelty and home décor.

The original owner wanted their shop to have a friendly, neighborhood feel. They built their business on this premise of friendly customer service and award winning window displays. In 1987, Metropolis was honored with the mayor’s award for being one of Seattle’s top 10 small businesses. It has always been a priority to recognize and welcome every customer who came into the store.

After 35 years later, we continue along these lines plus introduce a new online store that will allow us to continue to sell our products and services across the country.
