EAST GRAND FORKS — I went shopping for Christmas gifts, and Home of Economy offers a nice selection of merchandise and decent prices, too. Then when I was at the checkout, the clerk reminded me that the store wraps all gifts — and for free.
It took her two hours to wrap all the gifts I had, and she was so friendly and glad to do it.
The wrapping paper is really nice and no charge. There is a little basket for tips.
I can’t even begin to say how nice it was to load all that up, then go home and have all the gifts already wrapped. It gave me more time to get the cleaning and baking done.
I remember when it was the norm for stores to offer free gift-wrapping.
It’s old fashioned, but so wonderful.
What a nice convenience. I wish more stores offered it.
