CARTHAGE, Ill. -- The Memorial Hospital Foundation's gift shop in the lobby of UnityPoint Health Memorial Hospital in Carthage is putting a new spin on local shopping with "pop-up" shops.

The gift shop, which had its grand reopening ceremony on July 23, will operate as a normal retail gift shop, but some items from Hancock County businesses and vendors will only be available for a week.

The gift shop was originally operated by the Memorial Hospital Auxiliary. The Memorial Hospital Foundation took over when the auxiliary officially disbanded. It is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
