A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Thursday, November 10, at The Corner Gift Shop at Fulton County Medical Center. “We have assembled a fine selection of gifts that we think shoppers will find very enticing,” said Helen Overly, the gift shop coordinator. “We currently have a great selection of holiday merchandise,” she added.

The gift shop hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, most weeks. The shop also offers coffee and some snacks, as well as magazines, the usual array of get-well cards and gifts, but also fine jewelry at affordable prics.

The shop is located just down the hall to the right after coming through the main entrance. It is right in front of the rehabilitation services. There is ample parking in front of the hospital.

Ribbon-cutting shoppers enjoyed free cookies, punch and snacks as well as the chance to draw for a 10 percent, 15 percent or 20 percent discount off the day’s purchases. The funds raised at the gift shop go to support the Medical Center’s programs like patient care and health education.
