On Sunday, December 1, 2019 for the third consecutive year, more than 1,200 museum stores representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia, 15 countries, and four continents will offer inspired shopping inside museums and cultural institutions during Museum Store Sunday. The VBMA Museum Store at 3001 Riverside Park Drive is thrilled to participate in this signature annual initiative and join museum stores worldwide by offering quality gifts filled with inspiration and educational value to consumers, with all purchases supporting its parent institution.
During this day, as part of the VBMA participation in Museum Store Sunday, shoppers will be offered a special 20% off* all holiday merchandise on this one day. Each purchase supports the missions and programs of the museum, and museum admission is not required to shop the store.
“We are delighted to be participating in this year’s Museum Store Sunday and be able to interact with our patrons and community,” said Barbara Dunn, VBMA Museum Store Manager. “This year, we are excited to showcase our broad assortments of unique, mission-related gifts and invite everyone to “Be A Patron” with every purchase from our Museum Store directly supporting the educational mission of the Vero Beach Museum of Art.”
Susan Tudor, President of the MSA Board of Directors and Manager of Visitor Services and Store Buyer for the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens continued, “Consumers around the world can shop and give gifts with purpose from their local museum stores on Museum Store Sunday. Proceeds from these purchases help sustain the museums’ service to the public at the same time. Museum Store Sunday highlights the opportunity for the public to support their local businesses, give back to their community through patronage of their local non-profit museums, find unique holiday gifts, and enjoy an entertaining and educational shopping experience at their favorite museums with family and friends, all at the same time.”
Museum Store Sunday has quickly become the global annual day to Be a Patron – and shop conscientiously and support museum stores and their missions worldwide. While there is only one Museum Store Sunday each year, everyone is encouraged to Be a Patron of museums and museum stores all year round.
