Community Spotlight- Gloria’s Hallmark Shop

Community Spotlight- Gloria’s Hallmark Shop

We love to highlight local businesses but we really love it when the business has been in the same family for so long that we see generational change in its leadership! Such is the case with our own Gloria’s Hallmark Shop in Morehead City. This beautiful little shop provides its visitors with a bounty of gift ideas, toys, puzzles, and of course, the always popular Hallmark Cards. Started in 1978 by Miss Gloria herself, this icon has been serving both residents and visitors alike- always with a friendly, helpful, and welcoming staff. After Miss Gloria, the gauntlet was passed to her daughter, Lisa who runs the store with the same grace that her mother did. If you haven’t checked out Gloria’s Hallmark in the Cypress Bay Plaza, do yourself a favor and prepare to be impressed!

Locally owned and family operated, Kidz At Play Family Cafe offers private parties and features some work of local artists for sale as well!
