Creative Kitchens on Garrison Ave. in Fort Smith is giving customers a reason to smile on the International Day of Happiness.

The store is serving smiley face cupcakes and surprising their shoppers with a special treat.  

“So as people show up and are searching their pockets for change to put in the parking meter, we’re trying to beat them to the punch and plug their meter, and that makes people happy right away. It’s amazing how a quarter can make sombody happy,” said employee Meredith Eddins.

The International Day of Happiness was created by the United Nations in 2012. The bill stated that the “pursuit of happiness is a fundamental human goal.”
