Local company launches hospital gift shop
A health system has partnered with an eco-friendly branded merchandise company to establish a hospital gift shop.
Metro Health – University of Michigan Health and Green Giftz partnered to open a new gift shop in the hospital’s main lobby, at 5900 Byron Center Ave. SW in Wyoming.
Metro Health had closed the gift shop in December 2018 and has been working on renovations over the past year, reopening it late last month.
Green Giftz has been contracted to supply all of the merchandise in the gift shop, including apparel, jewelry, cards, snacks, toiletries, unique gifts and locally made “eco-friendly” items. The company also manages the gift shop, which is staffed by Metro Health volunteers.
A donation from John and Linda VanSingel allows all gift shop proceeds to benefit the Metro Health Hospital Foundation.
