Millennials comprise the biggest number of buyers and we found that to be the case in Southern Minnesota.
One resident who is of Generation X does not buy cards anymore.
"I would say probably social media, Facebook, everyone knows what's going on anyways," Dan Ruggeberg said.
Samuek Vukov, a millennial, loves to buy cards.
"I think one of the best gifts you can give someone is your own handwriting -- that's kind of lost in a lot of the digital things because everything's typed." Vukov said.
