Empowering Our Retailers

In this day and age of outsourcing, more and more gift shops in the healthcare industry are being subcontracted to third party operators. Our goal is to empower our Retailers with programs that increase the gift shop’s bottom line through our partnerships with key vendors, in all the categories that shape your gift shop. Retail education, industry trend reports and networking opportunities ensure true engagement in the healthcare gift shop community that we believe is integral to success.
