J’s gift shop offers variety

|

J’s Gift Shop has been able to rely on its legal customer base since making a move from its former location on east Whitley Ave. to its new storefront on Chase Ave. just about a year ago.
The store, owns and operated by the Navarro family–John and Mary and daughters Carol and Rosemary–first came to life nearly 20 years ago at J’s Mini Mart and its accompanying gas station. When that business was sold, it did not take long for the family to make the decision to re-open its gift shop downtown.

New hunt clues

Corcoran is celebrating its 100th birthday and we’re providing a way for our residents to jump in and join the fun. Plenty of activities will be held through 2014 to commemorate the anniversary. Our special treasure hunt has already begun.
Throughout 2014, The Corcoran Journal, in partnership with the city, will encourage local residents to find 100 City of Corcoran stickers that will be placed in 100 different places. Start looking and get to know your community. All the stickers, which are three inches in diameter, will be fairly easy to spot once participants are in the right place. They will be placed around town on a weekly basis, with clues to their whereabouts.
In order to begin seeking the hiding places, participants need a game card, which can be picked up at city hall or at The Corcoran Journal office. Take the card, include a name and phone number on it and start looking.
