Brunswick Gift Shop Grand Re-Opening

BRUNSWICK, Georgia: Aug. 8, 2006 – After weeks of renovation, the main lobby gift shop at the Southeast Georgia Health System Brunswick Campus has re-opened. The Campus Auxiliary invites everyone to the join them for a grand re-opening celebration on Wednesday, Aug. 15, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. The gift shop is located adjacent to the main hospital entrance at 2415 Parkwood Avenue, and free valet parking is available.

Beginning at 11 a.m., drawings will be held for door prizes. Selected merchandise will also be on sale for 25% off, says Jim Shehy, manager of Volunteer Services.

“The 250-foot addition and new open layout of the shop will allow us to expand the variety of merchandise offered for sale,” he says. “Additionally, it gives us more storage space.” He also added that the gift shop in the Medical Mall inside the Outpatient Care Center will remain open—giving customers two convenient locations to shop for maternity gifts, greeting cards, collectibles for college football fans, plush animals, purses, balloons, a wide-assortment of snacks, decorative items, and toiletries, as well as beach inspired objects for the home or office.

Both gift shops are staffed entirely by Auxiliary volunteers. The main lobby location is open seven days a week, 365 days a year. Hours of operation are Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays and holidays from 1:30 to 5 p.m. As with all Auxiliary fundraising efforts, proceeds from both gift shops are donated to the hospital for patient care services and equipment.

“We are very excited to have the shop back open for business and look forward to having everyone drop by to see our new look and additional space,” Shehy says.
