Locally owned Gifty Gifts to close

Posted By on Wed, Jan 6, 2010 at 4:45 PM

Another casualty of the economy, locally owned Gifty Gifts (5806-A3 Prosperity Church Road) out in the University area is set to close soon. Sad face.

From an e-mail sent out to mailing list subscribers:

It’s time to retire said Dewayne of Gifty Gifts. We opened Gifty Gifts with the mindset of serving the gifting needs of our community. Our idea was to provide a gift store with friendly customer service and great quality gifts.

In February of 2005 Dewayne and Sharon opened Gifty Gifts. It had all the qualifications needed: location, parking, no other gift stores nearby, near an anchor food store and other supporting stores. So with their life savings and a desire to offer a friendly shopping environment to the community they opened the doors.

In the last 5 years we have so enjoyed our wonderful customers. Many times we have laughed or cried together. Hopefully we made a difference. We invested our life savings and the economy has not been kind. We will miss you so much and will miss wrapping your lovely gifts. Thanks for shopping with us.

Stop by soon to wish the owners good luck in their future endeavors.
