7 Hallmark stores in Idaho refuse to carry the new Hallmark cards celebrating gay marriage

IdahoPress reports:
The Treasure Valley's seven Hallmark greeting card stores will not carry the company's new same-sex marriage cards, a manager for the Jordan's Hallmark in Karcher Mall said today. The Nampa store has already received customer complaints about the cards, which Hallmark is rolling out this year. "I have had people saying they would no longer shop at Hallmark based on the fact that Hallmark is carrying them," assistant manager for the Nampa store, Cassi Jacobsen said. The seven Jordan's Hallmark stores are owned by a local family who is out of town and not available for comment, Jacobsen said. They have the option of carrying the cards or not. The Nampa store is the only one in Canyon County - the rest are in Ada County. "Because of their beliefs, they will not be carrying those cards into the stores," Jacobsen said. "I don't know any more than that. They don't believe that it's right."READ MORE
