Go! Calendars, Games & Toys named its store in Bellingham as the Calendar Store of the Year.
James and Amanda Hagarty, operators of the store at Bellis Fair, received $2,500 for winning the award.
There are more than 860 Go! Calendars stores across the United States and most are open for just a few months around the holidays. Each store is run by an independent operator. The Store of the Year is based on performance in several different sales categories.
“James and Amanda did extremely well across all of our categories,” said Mike Hejny, executive vice president of merchandising and store operations for Go! Calendars, Games & Toys, in a news release. “Their kiosk outperformed some of our larger stores because they had some great folks working for them and were able to provide outstanding sales and service to their customers.”
This is the second year the Hagartys operated a Go! Calendars store in Bellingham. The store at Bellis Fair opened in September and will close by the end of the month. Beginning Friday, all calendars will be 75 percent off.
