Gerber Memorial Gift Shop grand reopening April 10
FREMONT – Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial is celebrating the grand reopening of its freshly renovated Gift Shop on Wednesday, April 10, to showcase its new look, all-new inventory and expanded line of Spectrum Health branded merchandise. The Grand Reopening will include a ribbon cutting ceremony at 11:00 am and 10 percent off all items on Wednesday.
“The Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial Gift Shop is truly a labor of love that involved so many people who wanted to give our community a place where people can shop in a bright, open and welcoming setting, and buy unique affordable gifts for any occasion,” said Shelly Johnson, Gerber Memorial chief operating officer. “Gerber Memorial renovated our Gift Shop with the goal of giving the people we serve a place where they can shop or browse in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. We’re really excited to start this new chapter in the history of our Gift Shop and invite everyone in the community to visit us and enjoy a new shopping experience.”
Gerber’s volunteers played an instrumental role in the gift shop renovation.
“Throughout Gerber Memorial, our volunteers play an important role in everything that we do, from ensuring our patients are comfortable to assisting visitors get to where they need to go to running our Gift Shop,” Johnson said. “Gerber Memorial is extremely grateful for what our volunteers do, every day, for our families and our entire community.”
While The Gift Shop remains in its original location at the hospital east of the main hospital lobby and just past the Betty Ford Breast Care Services clinic, it received a significant makeover: The store has new flooring, new shelving, new display arrangements and even a mock fireplace. Gerber Memorial also conducted a survey among its clientele that asked what shoppers might like to see at The Gift Shop. The result: An all-new inventory, with items ranging locally crafted jewelry, children’s books, unique specialty items, high quality Spectrum Health branded goods, home décor goods and inspirational gifts.
In addition to new items and products The Gift Shop will also feature new software that will allow point-of-sale computerized tracking, resulting in better inventory management and customer tracking.
