DOWNTOWN RUTLAND - Are you all thumbs when it comes to wrapping presents? If you shop in downtown Rutland then the Downtown Gift Wrap Depot, managed by the Downtown Rutland Partnership, is the answer to your problems.
And this year the Gift Wrap Depot is going 'green.' Individuals have a choice; have your packages wrapped in the traditional manner with colored paper and ribbons or use recycled materials. Brighten up your presents by having them wrapped in the Sunday comics, maps or plain newsprint. Think sustainability! Newsprint and comics are courtesy of a local newspaper.
A nominal fee will be charged to have your downtown purchases wrapped and ready to go under the tree.
The Gift Wrap Depot will be located in the Mead Building, 94 Merchants Row. Use of the space is courtesy of the Mead Building Inc.
The Gift Wrap Depot officially opens Wednesday, December 16 and will be open for business through Christmas Eve.
Depot hours are Dec. 19, noon to 5 p.m.; Dec. 21-23, noon to 7 p.m.; and Dec. 24, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Gift Wrap Depot and other downtown HollyDays activities are possible through the support of the following businesses: Citizens Bank, Fair Point Communications, the Rutland Herald, Price Chopper, Key Bank, VELCO, OMYA, Gus' Tobacco Shop, Casella Waste Management and Best Western.
