New Plaza Gift and Flower Shop Opens

January 10, 2024 - The Plaza Gift and Flower Shop in the main lobby reopened January 10 following extensive renovations that started in February 2023. The renovations are part of the Campus Renewal Project. And after nearly a year under wraps, the new shop opened as you might expect at a grand reopening - with its own red carpet.

“Welcome – now walk the red carpet,” Stephanie Neal, Barnes-Jewish retail shops manager, directed some of the many visitors to the new store. “We’re so glad to have you here.”

Neal says she loves the modern look of the new gift shop. “I'm most excited about our flower shop being at the entrance of the store. Some customers did not realize we had a full-service floral department because the flower shop was tucked away toward the back of the store.”

“The reopening of the gift shop is an exciting milestone in the Plaza Entry component of the Campus Renewal Project,” says Steph Kroener, BJC senior activation manager. “I’ve seen the progress along the way, and I really think team members, patients and visitors will love the new shop.”

Plaza Entry is being completed in stages to minimize disruption to patients, visitors and team members.
