Collingwood General & Marine Hospital Gift Shop
The Collingwood General and Marine Hospital’s Gift Shop is the local shopping treasure of the town. They like to say they have a little something for everyone. The Gift Shop is located at the hospital main entrance opposite the Information Desk, but don’t let the small size fool you… it’s a traditional hospital gift shop, a snack shack, used book store and fashion boutique all rolled into one! As a matter of fact, it is not uncommon to hear phrases from their customers such as, “This gift shop is Collingwood’s best kept secret,” or “I always find the perfect gift here,” or “Your Buyer has the best taste!” (By the way, we agree!). The Head Buyer, Volunteer Chris Macfarlane, has been at the CGMH Gift Shop for 20 years. She has a real knack for finding the unique, bringing in the practical, while also showcasing the current trends. The Gift Shop has clothing and seasonal accessories (from purses and hats, to scarves and gloves), a great selection of home décor and seasonal home accents, baby gifts, as well as a large selection of travel purses and much needed travel accessories. It is also the place to find a revolving collection of preloved books for only $1 (with no tax!). Finally, this is the place to also find strong coffee, assorted juices, and for those who need a snack; muffins, cookies, yogurt, hummus and/or cheese with crackers, potato chips or chocolate bars. The Gift Shop has the perfect assortment of finds and ‘treasures,’ whether you have popped in for a few minutes while on your way to an appointment or visiting someone inside the hospital. With their constant turnover of product, they recommend you visit regularly to see what’s new. Due to demand, the CGMH Gift Shop is now on Instagram to promote their new arrivals and seasonal special offers. (By the way, now in, their spring line, washable linens by DKR and cruise wear!). Follow them @shopcgmhgiftshop. Its guilt free shopping too. The best part of the CGMH Gift Shop totally run by volunteers is finding something you were looking for and knowing all proceeds of the sale go directly into the hospital operating budget. Imagine that… By buying your new summer flip flops and summer beach hat here at the Gift Shop, the hospital gets the revenues. (Okay, maybe not that simplistic, but you get the picture.) Visit the CGMH gift shop today and discover some of the best brands, and local vendors too. They have the largest selection of travel purses and travel accessories from Travelon. They also have a great assortment of clothes from Point Zero and sleepwear from PJ Harlow and Avenue Five. For the perfect special baby gift, come see their plush wall of adorable stuffies and the best variety of Lil’Lama toys and nursery accessories. Are you looking for a great hostess gift or birthday gift? Pop by and see for yourself. One of their 27 volunteers will be here waiting to great you with a warm smile, and direct you to their new arrivals. They also add their special touch and wrap your gift with tissue and ribbon. Visit today. The first thirty minutes of parking is always free - just enough time to pop in and see what’s new… It’s worth the stop to shop at CGMH Gift Shop! Thank you for supporting our hospital!
