More about Ahni, Zoe, and Creative Memories

AhniandZoelogo

Ahni and Zoe are now history, at least in the U.S. and Canada. Their direct sales business  is joining the graveyard of failed businesses. Some of the products may reappear, since the production equipment, patents, and brand names have been purchased, but the business model will be different. Ahni and Zoe have cancelled all consultant contracts and eliminated U.S. staff responsible for direct sales.

If you’re interested in the going out of business sale, come to Saint Cloud on September 23. Check out Grafe Auction Company for more details.

As previously indicated, Creative Memories Japan, which did  not file for bankruptcy, remains operational.

My interests extend from preservation of traditional photographs to the production of photo books to the expected longevity of electronic image files. My long-term objective is to direct the development of technology that meets consumers needs for high-quality products.

    How did the management let it all go so wrong
    I miss their albums, nothing available comes close.

      I am an Our Memories for Life consultant. Rhonda Anderson went to that company and the coversets are the same the CM albums used to be…book cloth! I like them!

  3. Nicole says:

    I’m still holding out hope that someone will restart production of the albums and pages/refills. But it’s heartbreaking for those who lost their livelihoods because of this.

  4. Linda says:

    the new owner has shared that he’s been a longtime CM fan, believes in the mission, and plans to offer what some of us consultants are calling “the best of CM and Ahni and Zoe” – should know more in Sept. with an October product release timeframe

    Deja vu? meh…

    Maybe some folks will finally see it isn’t going to happen; its not coming back – the pics look so sad (except for the chip monk or squirrel).
