Danville, VA.-- After 28 years, one store in Danville is still going strong. Karen's Hallmark is located at the Piedmont Mall and has been there ever since the mall opened in August of 1984.
The store sells cards, Christmas ornaments, stuffed animals and other gifts.
Karen's Hallmark also plays their part in the community. They support local authors by selling their books and hosting book signings. They also put together a race every year to raise money for cancer patients in the area.
Owner Karen Johnston says being in the mall for so long has helped her make connections in the community.
"Great people here working in the mall we built a lot of friendships over the years here with the merchants in the mall as well as our customers here in the mall," said Johnston.
In celebration of their anniversary, Karen's Hallmark had a 28 % off selected items sale throughout August, and it ended Sunday.
