Norman’s Hallmark is opening a new location in Cross Keys Commons in Washington Township, which most know as the “Walmart” shopping center in Turnersville.
The new card and gift store will be located in the strip mall segment across from Walmart and will be situated between Marshalls and Dollar Tree.
Norman’s Hallmark has signage on the windows clearly indicating they are coming. A second set of signs states they are hiring for all positions ahead of an October opening. Which is NEXT MONTH!
A peek in the large glass front windows shows the walls and carpeting are basically ready to go. I imagine that most of the store displays are free standing, so probably can roll them in fairly quickly, and then inventory.
Norman’s is a well known and respected name, as I remember the comments on the associated Facebook post at my 42Freeway page were just one happy comment after another!
They are actually the largest independent owner of Gold Crown Hallmark stores!
Turnersville will be the second Norman’s Hallmark location in the core 42Freeway area, as a year ago they opened a store in Deptford NJ in the Hobby Lobby shopping center.
They also have stores in Cherry Hill, Moorestown, Mt Laurel, Medford, Burlington, Mays Landing and more!
In August I reported that the same Cross Keys Commons shopping center will also be welcoming Crumbl Cookies and Kung Fu Tea. I don’t have any updates on the opening at this time. It seems there has been no activity at the Crumbl location.
While the store clearly has signs saying that they are coming (which I wouldve seen soon enough) it was the Township Business Buzz Facebook Page that tipped me off sooner. The Buzz page is run by Washington Township’s Advisory Board of Economic Development.
The Norman’s Hallmark Experience!
I live not too far from the Deptford Norman’s location and since they have opened, I don’t think we’ve purchased greeting cards anywhere else.
Not to mention several gifts and candy. The candy though rarely makes it past me. I have a sweet tooth!
The Deptford store is very bright and… whimsical?
While first and foremost it is a greeting card store, the large card section is really only 1/4 of the store.
The rest of the store is a variety of interesting gift items including their famous Christmas Holiday ornament debit which should be October 1st.
In my visit to Deptford a year ago they were featuring gifts and home decor for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
The products even included well know branded items from iconic brands such as Peanuts, Disney and Star Wars.
And they go even beyond the décor style gift items and will even feature clothing! T-shirts, winter wear and more.
I used the word “whimsical” to describe the Norman’s experience… and I’ll stick with it. If you give yourself a minute to browse it will into 10 minutes as you find one cool thing after another to grab your attention.
