Lourdes Hospital will open its newly renovated and restyled gift shop and café located at 169 Riverside Drive, Binghamton on July 10. A blessing and ribbon-cutting event will be held at 1:00 PM to unveil Branches – Gifts in Bloom with an open house to follow. Grand opening festivities include: light refreshments, a chance to win a Branches gift bag and future use coupons with purchase.
Lourdes has partnered with TouchPoint Support Services to complete the renovation, turning it from a traditional hospital gift shop into a unique gift shop with distinctive merchandise. Approximately 350 square feet, the updated gift shop will feature a variety of branded gift and accessory items for men, women and children, a small selection of snacks and drinks, and services such as fresh floral delivery.
“Our focus is to offer items and services that are important to patients, families and associates,” explained Phyllis Callaghan, Lourdes Auxiliary President. “Branches will be a convenient place for them to get whatever they need – from a forgotten toothbrush to a gift to a book or magazine.”
Among the merchandise offered will be:
- Women's Handbags & Accessories
- Apparel and Jewelry
- Hot and Cold Beverages
- Fresh Flowers & Plants
- Gifts-Baby/Inspirational/Home Décor/Logo/Personal/Seasonal
- Greeting Cards/Stationery/ Books/ Magazines
- Personal Care Items
- Plush, Toys & Games
- Movie Passes, Postage Stamps and Branches Gift Cards
Lourdes Volunteers will continue to serve customers in the gift shop and café DePaul. Proceeds from gift shop sales benefit the Lourdes Auxiliary and the support they provide to Lourdes Hospital.
Hours for the gift shop will be 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday; 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM on Saturday; and 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM on Sunday.
