There has been a Hallmark shop in this location for 44 years. Mom and I have been associated with Hallmark for 30 years and have ovned Saras' Hallmark for almost 28 years. During that time we've remodeled 3 times and we've doubled the size of the store.
We've offered a wide assortment of products over the years and have always tried to find items that are appealing and not available in every store. We expanded our everyday and seasonal greeting card selection to the largest in the area.
Unfortunately, there just isn't enough day-to-day traffic to keep the store open. There are a lot of factors involved in running a business -- rent, utilities, inventory, taxes, payroll, and more. Over the past 3 years we've had fewer and fewer people shopping with us on a daily basis and seasonally. The availablity of Hallmark cards and products at Walgreens, Kohls, Publix, CVS, Books-A-Million, and Walmart has made it easier to pick up a card whenever you're shopping at one of those places.
The nearest Gold Crown store is at Hamilton Place Mall on the Upper Level near Sears. If you're looking for a good selection of gifts check out Linda's Hallmark in Farragut.
We really appreciate everyone who has shopped with us over the years. We're very touched that you want us to stay open but it's just not possible.

Sara's Hallmark was an approximately 3000 square foot Hallmark Gold Crown store that was established on August 11, 1987 by a mother and daughter.
Locally owned and operated (not a franchise or part of a chain), we were the only Hallmark Gold Crown store in Cleveland, Tennessee and we strove to offer unique gifts and the biggest and best selection of greetomg cards in southeast Tennessee..
Our customers came from not just Bradley County but also Polk, Hamilton, McMinn, Monroe, and Rhea counties as well as southwestern North Carolina and even parts of north Georgia!
