DOLLARS FOR DONUTS

Use cash or a check instead of a credit card when shopping at Calico Gals and you’ll be entered in the monthly drawing to win one of two $50 gift certificates!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MAY!

If it’s your birthday this month, you can receive a gift! Download the coupon (PDF), print it, and bring it into the store. The coupon is good one time only, any day during your birthday month.

Note about the map

Important! On the map you will see a street labeled Hazelhurst, just to the right of the red balloon. That is the wrong name! The name of the street is actually Marisa Heights. So, when you’re looking for the store, it’s at the corner of New Court Ave. and Marisa Heights (which is a teeny little street with a big sign).
