About Us

Opening in 2013, Merle Norman Olney has been your one stop shop for inner and outer beauty. Ranging from Merle Norman cosmetic & skincare products to the perfect gift for any occasion, we literally have it all. 

Owner Joy Griffin has been working in a Merle Norman on and off for most of her life. Starting in her mother's stores, to owning her own in the early 2000s, Joy is as close to an expert as it gets. When she deciding to open Merle Norman Olney, she had more space than she could imagine and needed to fill out the space somehow. And that's how the gift shop was born. Flying to the Atlanta Gift Show with a friend, no plan and no clue what to expect, she starting buying things she knew she would like and wanted to share these great gifts with her soon to be customers.
