On Sunday, November 29, 2020 for the fourth consecutive year, more than 1,400 museum stores representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia, 23 countries, and five continents will offer inspired shopping at museums and cultural institutions during Museum Store Sunday. The Museum Store at 3001 Riverside Park Drive VBMA 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 store-wide 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.”
Blue Anderson, President of the Museum Store Association Board of Directors and Director of Visitor Services for the Columbia River Maritime Museum, continued, “This year it’s more important than ever to support local cultural institutions—many of which have been closed for months due to COVID-19 restrictions. On Museum Store Sunday, we encourage shoppers to ‘Be a Patron’ at their favorite museum stores to not only find inspiring, creative, and educational gifts for friends and family, but to also lend much needed support to these important venues. Whether online or in person, Museum Store Sunday is a wonderful opportunity for consumers around the world to shop local, support artisans and small suppliers, give back to the community, and find unique gifts for loved ones.”
During these uncertain times, shoppers can look forward to Museum Store Sunday as 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.
