The Muir Galleria (a retail store) is a specialty gift shop located off the lobby of John Muir Medical Center, Walnut Creek. All proceeds are given to the John Muir Medical Center, Walnut Creek Auxiliary to be used to purchase state-of-the-art equipment or outreach programs for the medical center.
If you need something special for a patient being treated at John Muir Medical Center, Walnut Creek we have many items available. Gift wrapping is provided at a nominal charge. With any purchase, you can add a balloon for a small additional fee. Some balloon selections are available in Spanish. We welcome telephone orders and accept Visa and MasterCard credit cards.
Have a friend or relative in the hospital? We can help brighten their day. We have beautiful floral arrangements from $14.95 to $49.95, delivered to us fresh daily. We also carry silk flowers which change with the seasons. Flower arrangements can also be ordered by calling the gift shop.
New baby? We have baby clothes from 3 months to 24 months. We even have "preemie" clothes for those tiny babies. We carry baby toys, big and little brother and sister shirts, and t-shirts with cute sayings. We also have "I was born at John Muir" shirts, and many more baby items.
Stuffed Animals and Toys
Our stuffed animals come in all shapes and sizes: bears, dogs, cats, owls, frogs, turtles, rabbits, dinosaurs, tigers, many more. The Toy Department features a selection of games, coloring books, dolls, die cast cars, and seasonal toys, including animated musicals.
Apparel and Jewelry
Our apparel department carries jackets, dresses in the warmer weather, vests, t-shirts, sweaters, and sleep shirts. We also feature accessories including jewelry, scarves, hats, handbags, watches and slippers. We are always looking for new items in this area.
We also have a rather extensive gift department, with items for all ages. Frames, CD’s, seasonal items, hand creams, decorative pillows, angel items and so much more. We have a wide selection of cards, which can be sent to a patient in the medical center, for almost any occasion. Our Sundry section carries personal toiletries, hearing aid batteries and other items. We also carry turbans for those undergoing chemotherapy. We have many types of magazines and paperback books in stock.
For that sweet tooth (if permitted) we have chocolate, including See's Candies and non-chocolate and sugar free candy. Snack choices also include nutritious energy bars, bags of trail mix, nuts, cheese crackers, and much, much more.
