The challenging thing about the gift shop business is that nobody needs what you sell, said the new owner of the Cottage Grove Hallmark Gold Crown store.

"It's not like the grocery store where you have to go every week, and so we work hard to make it more exciting and more fun to keep people coming back regularly," said Brad Boogren, who now runs the store at 7282 E. Point Douglas Road near Rainbow Foods and American Motorsports Bar and Grill.
