Diana's Hallmark Store has gone out of business after 25 years. The store had two locations in our area: the original on Route 33 in Hamilton Square (near AC Moore) and the other in the Hamilton Marketplace (near Shop Rite) on Route 130 in Hamilton.

The owners, David and Diane, left their loyal customers a goodbye message on their facebook page: "We thank you all for the last 25 years. We appreciate all of your kind words and over the last few weeks, your generosity towards our employees. We will miss you all and wish you the best."

I'm shocked and so sad to see this store go. I hadn't been there since right before Christmas, so I didn't realize it was closing.

Yeah, I bet I missed some great sales, right? I've gotten so many cards, gifts, Christmas ornaments, candy, and scratch-off lottery tickets for my dad there, throughout the years.

It was such a nice store...I would wander around for an hour every time I visited. Everyone who worked there was always so nice & welcoming. I'll certainly miss it.

David and Diane's store in Lanoka Harbor (Ocean County) is still open, by the way.
