Who they are: Ann Marie and Rick Ferro are the owners of Annie’s Hallmark store in West Palm Beach. Ann Marie bought the store with her parents, Mary Ann and Andrew Armatas, in 1986 when she was just 18 years old. Ten years later, Ann Marie had 6 stores, but they’ve scaled back to the one original store, which she and Rick run together.
“We’ve seen a lot of changes over the past 28 years in the gift and card business and we changed with the times. We absolutely love what we do — both the creative end and the community aspect. People are our passion,” Ann Marie said.
