So you’ve done all your shopping for everyone on your list, congratulations! But now you’ve got to wrap them. Where can you pick up a nice roll of gift wrap, a festive bag, and ribbon in the neighborhood? We found a wide range of options along Church Avenue.
Super 99 Cent (121 Church Ave) has some of the most modern wrapping paper designs, with some great 40-square-foot rolls of stripes and polka dots for 99 cents each.
Across the street at Walgreens (114 Beverley Road), prices are a bit higher, with a 40-square-foot roll featuring your kid’s favorite characters from Cars at $1.99. But a neighbor picking out a few rolls told us she prefers paying a little more for this paper: “It’s heavier paper than what they sell at the 99 cent stores, that stuff you can see the present right through it!”
If you have a lot of gifts to wrap, MF Discount (309 Church Ave) is your best bet for gift wrap. Quantity-wise, you can get 100-square-foot rolls or stripes, cute characters, and more for the lowest price, at $2.69.
99 Cents & Up (209 Church Ave) has a nice selection of ribbon. Each roll is $1, so if you can’t decide on one, it won’t hurt your wallet to pick up a few.
If you’ve got oddly-shaped gifts, or you’re just not adept with the scissors and tape (there’s a reason a lot of stores offer gift wrapping services!), stop by Parkway Pharmacy (531 Church Ave). Medium-sized bags, like the one pictured with candles, cost around $1.77.
Finally, all holiday gift wrap, bags, and ribbons are on sale for 33% off at Rite Aid (302 Church Ave) through Saturday, December 22. 40-square-foot rolls of wrapping paper cost around $4.99, so with the discount those are about $3.50. Still a little pricey, but they have the biggest selection on Church Ave.
Good luck with gift wrap shopping, and with the actual wrapping!
