We recently sat down with Randi Arndt, Gift Shop Manager at Sherman, to discuss the brand new space being built in the new Sherman Hospital.


Q: Where exactly will the new gift shop be located?
A: The new gift shop is conveniently located right in the main lobby, facing the “Tree of Life.”

Q: How big is it?
A: The new gift shop is just about twice the size of the current gift shop! It’s approximately 2,500 square feet, compared to the existing gift shop which is about 1,300 square feet.

Q: What new gift items will be for sale? We’ve heard you’re displaying items from local artists?
A: We will carry several new lines of giftware and jewelry, and we’ll also expand some of our existing lines. We will continue selling Breadsmith Bread, and will be able to carry a wider selection. Also, we currently have a “Sherman Friends & Family Gallery” in the shop, where we feature several volunteers’ and employees’ arts and crafts.

Q: How is the Sherman Perk being incorporated in the gift shop? Any new offerings or features?
A: The Sherman Perk will be bigger & better than ever! We will have a pickup window for convenience(pictured above), so when you walk in the main entrance to the hospital, you don’t even have to enter the gift shop to grab your coffee, latte, or snack. We will also have a vastly expanded food and beverage menu as well as a retail coffee area.

Q: What do proceeds from the gift shop go toward?
A: The proceeds of the gift shop help support Sherman Hospital’s auxiliary’s pledge for $1 million to the Birthing Center.

Thanks to Randi for giving us a sneak peek at the new gift shop, and stay tuned to the Future of Sherman blog and the main Future of Sherman website for further information and construction details as the new Sherman Hospital nears completion!
