Bliss Gift and Home (4465 Interstate 55 N.), a gift and home decor store located inside Banner Hall, is hosting a ribbon-cutting celebration tonight, May 17, to commemorate the opening of Bliss Bride, a new bridal concierge and gift-registry service that will be the only one of its kind based in Jackson.

Bliss Bride is located on the third floor of Banner Hall and shares space with interior-design store Lynn Myers Designs. Bliss Gift and Home is located on the ground floor of Banner Hall.
The store is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and is closed on Sundays. For more information, call 601-326-3337 or visit blissgiftandhome.com.
