Navy SEAL Museum to Participate in Museum Store Sunday

Fort Pierce, Fla. – November 22, 2019 – The Navy SEAL Museum will participate in the third annual Museum Store Sunday on December 1, 2019. The Navy SEAL Museum Store will join this signature initiative with other museum stores worldwide by offering a 10% discount on all its merchandise. As an added bonus, Museum members will receive an additional 5% discount (15% total) on all merchandise in store December 1.

For the third consecutive year, more than 1,200 museum stores representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia, 15 countries, and four continents will offer inspiring shopping inside museums and cultural institutions during Museum Store Sunday. All purchases at the Navy SEAL Museum’s Store will support the Museum’s Trident House Charities Program.

“We are excited to participate in an initiative that highlights the importance of museums and the merchandise that enriches and educates guests,” said Rick Kaiser, Executive Director of the Navy SEAL Museum. “This incentive benefits our guests, but also gives back to our Naval Special Warfare community from its proceeds.”

Sponsored by The Museum Gift Shop Association, Museum Store Sunday has quickly become the global annual day to Be a Patron – and shop conscientiously and support museum stores and their missions worldwide. While there is only one Museum Store Sunday each year, everyone is encouraged to Be a Patron of museums and museum stores all year round.

“Consumers around the world can shop and give gifts with purpose from their local museum stores on Museum Store Sunday,” said Susan Tudor, President of the MSA Board of Directors and Manager of Visitor Services and Store Buyer for the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens. “Proceeds from these purchases help sustain the museums’ service to the public at the same time. Museum Store Sunday highlights the opportunity for the public to support their local businesses, give back to their community through patronage of their local non-profit museums, find unique holiday gifts, and enjoy an entertaining and educational shopping experience at their favorite museums with family and friends, all at the same time.”

Museum Store Sunday discounts are applicable in store only and not online. For more information on events and promotions during Museum Store Sunday at the Navy SEAL Museum, please visit www.navysealmuseum.org.
