KANSAS CITY, Mo. (November 01, 2017) ─ The Hallmark Signature Store, a boutique-style retail experience developed by Hallmark Cards, Inc., introduces a first-of-its-kind store at Santa Monica Place Shopping Center. Santa Monica will be the first city in the nation to welcome this new store concept. The store opens on Wednesday, November 1.
Hallmark developed the Hallmark Signature Store to bring to life its Signature brand of premium greeting cards. The stylish, modern and upscale shopping experience offers shoppers unique, premium greetings cards, stationery and gifts that are as perfect for celebrating life’s special people and occasions as they are for making every day moments even better.
“We are thrilled to be bringing this Signature brand experience to Santa Monica Place,” said Lindsey Roy, Chief Marketing Officer, Hallmark Greetings. “The Hallmark Signature Store is where style and thoughtfulness meet. It’s a fresh and inviting space where you can enjoy, explore, be inspired and find unique and special ways to celebrate and spoil those around you, including yourself. We believe in the power of a handwritten card and a well-chosen gift, and we know our shoppers will, too.”
The Hallmark Signature Store offers an impressive selection of hundreds of Signature greetings cards, as well as unique stationery, gift wrap, home office items, entertaining ware, and more. Shoppers can find year-round inspiration with an ever-changing selection of seasonal and everyday cards and gifts.
In addition, the Hallmark Signature Store will tap into California’s artist and maker communities to enrich the shopping experience. For launch, the store has partnered with the Sisters of Los Angeles brand to bring a unique and trend-forward gift collection to the store that celebrates “the Golden State.”
On November 5, the Hallmark Signature Store will host an exclusive VIP Friendsgiving Brunch to celebrate the opening of this exciting new concept. Special guests include Hallmark Channel stars Danica McKellar and Dean Cain, as well as other influencers and tastemakers in the L.A. area.
Grand Opening week festivities will continue Nov. 5-11, with the first 50 shoppers each day receiving a free Signature gift while visiting the new store when they mention Hallmark Signature Store on their social media channels.
