Gift shop benefiting GiGi's Playhouse opens
Hugs & Mugs Gift Shop & Cafe, which offers keepsake mugs and other gift items designed by adults with Down syndrome to support GiGi's Playhouse, held its grand opening Saturday.
The event featured a ribbon-cutting with Hoffman Estates Mayor Bill McLeod, as well as remarks from parents and participants and tours of the store and adjoining National Achievement Center.
"The greatest part about Hugs & Mugs is that it's run by adults with Down syndrome," said Marc Portugal, GiGi's Playhouse development director. "We cannot be more excited to open up Hugs & Mugs today, and offer it up to the community."
Hugs & Mugs is located at 2350 W. Higgins Road in Hoffman Estates.
