The camp store at the Westmoreland State Park, Virginia State Parks. T-shirts and hats are top selling for the system.


veryone loves a memento to remember the great time they had at a vacation spot, on a family trip, or during a weekend getaway. Whether your customers are purchasing an item for themselves or picking up an item to bring home to someone, gift shops can be an important stop at the end of any trip. While many theme park and museum visitors enjoy perusing souvenir stores, there are plenty of campgrounds and state parks that also encourage visitors to shop. Retail directors for these fun destinations take care in picking out the perfect merchandise, and realize healthy profits from their efforts.

David Blacker, executive director of Death Valley Natural History Association, emphasized the importance of product design. He cited this critical element as a way to keep items fresh and visitors purchasing souvenirs from the 600-square-foot visitor’s center.
