Saturday, November, 29 is Small Business Saturday. With Hallmark in our name, many do not realize that we are small business. Most Hallmark stores are individually owned and that is why there are no two alike!
We’re two sisters who opened our first Hallmark store in Troy in 2003. We always wanted to open our own business but didn’t know exactly what type of business we wanted to open. Enter Hallmark – another family-owned business with products we love and a brand you could trust. In 2005, we were offered an opportunity to open a second store in Cottleville and that’s how our little business got started. We now have more than 15 employees and we support local schools & charities in the community!
It has been a lot of hard work mixed with fun that’s truly a family affair. You’ll often find sons, daughters, nieces, nephews, and husbands helping us out at the store! And we’ve learned a lot along the way! We’re the janitor, lawyer, the stockroom gal, sales associate, PR manager, computer programmer… you name it, we’ve done it! We always work hard to make the store a happy place with great customer service and fun products. We love what we do, we love finding new products, and we love our customers!!
We hope that on Small Business Saturday you’ll take the time to support a small business – ours and/or any other small business in the community. We also want you to know that we appreciate YOU, our customer, because without you we could not be here.
Thank you for supporting our business!
