American Greetings Encourages Everyone to Appreciate and Celebrate Friendship

Cleveland, OH (August 22, 2014) – True friends are confidants, partners-in-crime, memory makers, support systems and just simply make life better.  So often, we rely on these special relationships, but we don’t always remember to acknowledge our friends for their significant roles in our lives.  In addition to the many digital options for expressing gratitude to friends, consumers can find a large selection of paper cards in the American Greetings card aisle at their favorite retailer to share everything from encouragement and support to a laugh over a special memory.
