Late shoppers and anyone not sure of what someone might like as a gift may find a solution to their problem with gift certificates.Warwick Merchant Guild Committee leaders Mary Beth Schlichting, owner of Frazzleberries, Debbie Iurato, treasurer and co-owner of Peck’s Wines & Liquors, and Nicole Repose, co-owner of Etched in Time Engraving, suggest that everyone consider merchant gift certificates.
“For anyone who may have forgotten a gift for that hard-to-buy-for teacher, coach, graduating student or anyone else whose likes and dislikes, hobbies or style preferences in general are not well known, we have a solution,” said Debbie Iurato. “Gift certificates in five and ten-dollar denominations are available and redeemable at most Warwick shops. And the advantage, especially with the high price of gasoline, is that they do not require the recipient to travel a long distance or place a complicated order by telephone, on the Internet or from a catalog to redeem.”
Committee members argue that with gasoline at close to $4 per gallon, spending an afternoon or evening traveling to the mall to purchase a gift that someone may later wish to exchange, may not be the best option.
