Story & Photo – Joseph Boyle
Last night I was heading over to the Lakewood Towne Center Safeway when I spotted what I have termed “Good Sign – Bad Sign”. Check out my photo to see what I mean.
GOOD SIGN – Hallmark: For 35 years we have enjoyed the benefit of having a Hallmark Store and the friendly staff in Lakewood. Whenever I wanted to get a little something for my wife, I always headed to Hallmark. They never let me down.
BAD SIGN – Going Out Of Business: Well, very sad to say, they are going out of business.
February 22, 2013 will be the last day I can go to this “man friendly” store to buy my wife a greeting card, picture frame or charm bracelet.
The staff that works at Hallmark, some of whom for years, will be out of a job in about four weeks. The staff has not been given any reason why this is happening. Sad.
To anyone who might read this, please do what you can to help the Hallmark crew get a new job.
Hallmark staff, we wish you well.
