I went to The Gift Box to to buy some English Cadbury chocolate but found the store had been cleared out. World Market in Boulder has a selection of chocolate from around the world including Cadbury from England and Australia. If you are looking for crumpets then Sunflower markets sell them. You could also try Peppercorns in the Pearl street mall, if they are still in business, they sold a small selection of imported foods.

They have started refusing drop-off of USPS packages if you haven't purchased postage there/don't make a purchase. They are a certified, logo bearing Contract Unit, and as such, they're required to accept all valid postage and mailable materials. They've denied me three times now.

They're within walking distance of my home, and I've purchased things there pretty often, and even recognize the employee(s), but there are times I just need to drop something off that won't fit in my mailbox but don't want to drive to the Post Office.

Long story short, they're unfriendly & unreasonable, not to mention violating the terms of their contract with the USPS. In trying to protect their business, they have lost mine forever.

My next task: call USPS Consumer Affairs and report them.

I agree with everything other reviewers have posted regarding the appalling lack of customer service that the new owners of The Gift Box exhibit. Such a shame - the previous owners were so nice and this was the perfect store for Angliophiles. My last visit was so awful I have vowed to never go back. I can find what I need on the internet anyway. Will be interesting to see how long they stay in business - I'm betting they're gone by the end of summer.

I have had bad experiences with the Gift Box ever since it changed ownership from the former owners originally from Britain. However I put up with the rude and unhelpful owner who whines all the time about her employee's in front of customers.

However the last straw came when I purchased some frozen bacon and when I got to use the bacon two weeks later I found that the thermal seal between the two sheets of plastic had failed on all three packs of bacon that I haver purchased. When I returned them in a still frozen state the owner declined to do anything to correct the situation. I should have at the very least been offered an adequate replacement or a full refund. The owner suggests that I may had damaged to packets myself which is a ridiculous proposition.

She should have been grateful that I had highlighted a potential health risk.

I will take this further and will complain to the local food safety officials.

I have also checked on line and it looks like I can source all of my needs online and it may cost less even when shipping is included. I will probably only ship during the winter months so that I don't have to worry about heat spoilage.

If your only going there to ship something off with USPS, then sure The Gift Box is just fine. Other than that I dislike the store. The employees are rude and not very helpful, and the items there are overpriced.

I dislike the environment there, but unfortunately it's the only store around me that has USPS.

If you are looking for British foods that you miss from home, the Gift Box is the place for you.

They have everything here, from sweets to sausages, black pudding, crumpets etc etc etc. You name it they carry it, and if they don't they will tery to get it for you.

They also have a great selection of seasonal goods, Easter Eggs and Christmas crackers.

Easy access, plentiful parking and a great selection of essentials for the Brit away from home, make this store a great place to shop!

I stopped by this store to pick up 3 stamps to mail some birthday cards, and it was 3:50 on a Saturday.. they close at 4. When I asked if they had stamps, they all stood there looking irritated that I was even there and said YES but we are closed very rudely...

i will not be returning. for gifts-- or stamps.

Located near Michaels Arts and Crafts, this locally owned and operated shop has a great selection of greeting cards, Vera Bradley handbags and beautiful teapots and teacups. The family who owns and runs the store are from Britian and so they carry many delectable goodies from there. Yummy!
