AmericasMart will again serve as a founding sponsor of The Museum Collective, along with the Museum Store Association, during the January 2019 Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market. To promote the event, AmericasMart will host Museum Store Sunday, a shopping campaign, on November 25.
The organization said that the event is designed to encourage shoppers to “Be a Patron” by shopping conscientiously and supporting museum stores and their missions during the important Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
“When the opportunity arose to support the Museum Store Association and its Museum Store Sunday, it was immediately evident that it was the right fit for AmericasMart,” said George Kacic, executive v/p of Retail Services. “It is our responsibility and our pleasure to be a resource for the small business community, and this program continues that commitment. Museum stores support the cultural institutions that we hold so dear. Their dedication to celebrating education and innovation mirrors our organizational values.”
The Museum Collective is an open-to-all product resource with a merchandise mix designed both for museum-based retail and for the larger specialty retail community shopping the Atlanta January Market, said AmericasMart.
The Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market will be held January 9 to 16, 2019.
