HOLYOKE MALL INVITES YOU TO BE A PATRON AND SHOP ON MUSEUM STORE SUNDAY
Holyoke, MA – 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, 18 countries, and five continents will offer inspired shopping at museums and cultural institutions during Museum Store Sunday – an exciting annual event and shopping campaign that encourages consumers and museum visitors to consciously contribute to the future sustainability and success of each museum and cultural institution. Holyoke Mall is thrilled to host this initiative for the first time and host four area museums including Wistariahurst, Mark Twain House & Museum, Historic Deerfield and the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art. Representatives from this collection of museums will be located on the lower level near Macy’s from 11:00 am – 6:00 pm and will offer various items from their gift shops. All proceeds from store purchases directly support the missions and programs of museums and play a vital role in helping arts, cultural and non-profit attractions educate and thrive.
Holyoke Mall’s General Manager, Bill Rogalski shared, “We’re excited to host Museum Store Sunday and the special shopping experience we’ll be bringing our guests, while showcasing the local museum experience.”
Founded by the Museum Store Association (MSA), Museum Store Sunday has quickly become the global annual day that invites everyone to Be A Patron – and shop quality gifts that are exclusively found in museum stores and related non-profit retailers. While there is only one Museum Store Sunday each year, everyone is encouraged to Be A Patron of museums and shop museum stores all year round.
