In conjunction with the Museum Store Association (MSA), the Air Force Museum Store is participating in an exciting international annual event and shopping campaign for consumers, Museum Store Sunday. Taking place on Sunday, November 26, Museum Store Sunday will offer visitors and consumers inspired experiences and shopping opportunities provided by stores at museums and other cultural non-profit attractions.
Along with other contests, games and prizes, visitors to the Air Force Museum Store on Museum Store Sunday will be able to enter to win one of seven $50 Air Force Museum Store Gift Cards. One gift card will be given away each hour between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM. Gift card winners must be present to win. Plus, there will be numerous one-day-only specials in the store located inside the National Museum of the U.S. Air ForceTM.
In partnership with the United Kingdom’s Association for Cultural Enterprises and the Museum Shops Association of Australia and New Zealand, MSA’s Museum Store Sunday aims to be the global annual day to Be a Patron -- shop conscientiously and support museum stores and their missions worldwide.
“Holiday shoppers will not only be able to find quality gifts filled with inspirational, historical and educational value but, through their purchases, they help us fulfill our vision of honoring every Airman's story with a permanent home to inspire future generations,” stated Melinda Lawrence, Chief of Museum Store Operations at the Air Force Museum Foundation. The Air Force Museum Foundation operates the Air Force Museum Store.
Lawrence continued, “The Air Force Museum Store is so much more than a leading specialty retailer for aviation and military-themed merchandise. It is a meaningful connection to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force – the world’s largest military aviation museum.”
