OFF TOPIC

P.J.’s Hallmark Shop in Camino Real Marketplace in Goleta plans to go out of business the day after Valentine’s Day. They are down the street from where I live and I am sad to see them go. Nearly every birthday card, Valentine’s Day card, Christmas card or whatever-card I have given people over the last 10 years came from P.J.’s. Everything in the store is now 10-75% off.

    Wow, I’m sad on two levels: 1) for me – cause now I’ll have to go downtown to do my Hallmark shopping, 2) for them – such nice people – I hope they are retiring and not getting squeezed by outrageous rent.

      FYI, PJ’s was the last remaining Hallmark store in SB County. You’ll now have to go all the way to Ventura if you want to shop at Hallmark. This is a sad day. I’ve been a faithful supporter of PJ’s since it was in a former location and called Present Time.

    I’m really bummed to see them go to. I love this Hallmark store and go there for all my cards. Plus, it’s a fun store to browse through. I’ve purchased a lot of fun gifts in this store. Now where will I go for all my cards, especially in Goleta? Kmart just doesn’t cut it. I wish the employees at PJ’s all the best and we will miss you!

    Yep it was a good place to go.

    There are no Hallmark stores downtown. When Goleta closes the nearest stores will be the three in Ventura!

  5. Casper the friendly dude says:

    Even the Ventura locations get no customers. Why when you can go to dollar tree! and they even have cards in Español!

    PJs was a great place to go for little gifts for friends. I’ll miss them a lot. I guess I’ll have to shop for my Hallmark ornaments online, but that’s not as fun. Bummer!
