WOODBRIDGE, VA. (January 30, 2023) — Lori’s Gifts held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on January 27 at Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center in Woodbridge, Virginia to celebrate the Grand Opening of Store #652. Lori’s field leadership team gathered with hospital administrators, staff, and volunteers to cut the red red ribbon and welcome guests to the gift shop. The opening was met with tremendous enthusiasm, as the gift shop, previously operated by hospital volunteers, had been closed for two years due to the pandemic.

Tonya Jones, Director of Patient Relations, said that during opening day, Lori’s was the talk of the medical center, with staff and visitors eagerly awaiting a chance to see the shop’s amazing displays and selection. She stated, “Lori’s is already exceeding our expectations! We are thrilled that our patients, staff and visitors have this beautiful shop and amazing selection to enjoy and share with each other.”

Lori’s District Manager Dan Kuehn, said, “I have to say the hospital is very excited to have us. It’s been almost two years that the gift shop has been closed. The prior gift shop was run by volunteers, many of whom were there today to receive recognition and gratitude.” He added, “We were thanked many times for our partnership, and heard over and over how much they really loved our set-up and product selection.”
