It’s a great place for us to be as we expand Norman’s store portfolio in the Southern New Jersey market.”

Norman’s offers a complete line of Hallmark products, cards for every occasion and keepsake ornaments, along with a diverse merchandise selection for gift giving and the home that includes fashion apparel and accessories, books, stationery, games, home décor, specialty candy and gourmet foods.
