KENNEWICK, Wash. - Kennewick's Hallmark location will shut down operations at the beginning of next month.
Nationwide, Hallmark stores have struggled the past five years with the expansion of holiday card sections in retail and grocery stores.
Since 2012, two out of three stores have closed across the country. There were over 5,000 stores, but over half have closed with just 1,700 stores currently operating.
The Richland location will stay open and has no plans to shut down.
