The Gift Box: Refreshed and Open For Business

The Gift Box is the resident-run gift shop at Crane’s Mill. After a short hiatus, it’s back and better than ever.

The Gift Box—Open for Business

Have you ever discovered you’re low on shampoo, but don’t feel like taking a trip to the store? Have you ever realized your nephew’s birthday is fast approaching, and you need to mail a card today?

What if the convenience of a cozy little shop was a short, indoor walk from from your front door? That’s the reality for Crane’s Mill residents, as they enjoy the convenience of the Gift Box. Located in Towne Square, the Gift Box is run completely by resident volunteers, and offers an array of convenience items, gifts, greeting cards and more. Additionally, special merchandise and gifts change with the seasons.

As we posted earlier, the Gift Box is one of a few common spots receiving a facelift. The Gift Box received new carpet, paint, fixtures and more! The doors opened on Tuesday, March 26th, and the Crane’s Mill Courier was on-hand moments before the grand opening to snap pics of the newly renovated space. We’ve also included some “under construction” photos—enjoy! (Check back soon as we’ll give the same special treatment to our Library and Beauty Salon/Barber Shop)
