Ann's Hallmark and Creative is your local, family owned and Louisiana proud, Gold Crown Hallmark and gifts store. We are honored to have been serving Central Louisiana since 1979 and look forward to serving you, our treasured customers, for many years to come.
Ann's Hallmark, owned by Marcella "Ann" Morrison, has passed into the hands of her family upon her death in November of 2019. Her children Sammy, Tommy and Shanah are fully committed to continuing her legacy at Ann's Hallmark and in her so many other endeavors.
Marcella, originally from Avoyelles parish, had an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for owning businesses. If you knew her, you knew a woman of immense fortitude, grace, strength, creativity and fierce determination. She, along with her husband, opened the Dairy Queen franchise on MacArthur Drive in Alexandria. Generations of Central Louisiana residents have enjoyed great food and service there since 1964. Numerous business pursuits also followed. You may be familiar with some of them: Morrison's Cafeteria (Downtown Alexandria); Royal Cajun Fried Chicken and Catfish House (Avoyelles, Rapides and Vernon Parishes); Errand's Delivery Service (Louisiana); WM Country Store (Leesville); Leisure Arts and Crafts (Leesville); The Captain's Nest (Natchez, MS); three pet stores (Alexandria and Leesville); Flowers by Stan (Alexandria); Boo Coo's Louisiana Kitchen (Alexandria); and of course, her beloved Ann’s Hallmark (Alexandria).
Here at Ann's, our family is committed to helping you live a caring and connected life with your family and with those you love. We’ve got a great selection of cards, gifts and memorable keepsakes for all of life’s special moments. Come in for a moment and stay for a while!
