I have shopped at Decembers for many years until recently..I am in the process of moving and stopped in to ask if I may have boxes they are no longer using. I was told that I can drive to the back of their business on Monday's when they have shipments. One Monday morning I stopped behind the store and a not so nice lady in a older black car pulled up. I said "good morning" and she said I had no business taking their boxes, she would rather have the garbage trucks have them. She told me I would make a mess and I should leave. I left and will never shop there agin.. I just spent $60 dollars at hallmark and shall continue to do so.

Business Response:

We are sorry to hear that is how you felt. In regards to taking our boxes, we have no problems with people who can take and reuse our old boxes. However, we have an issue when it comes to people going through our trash bags. In our trash bags, there is a considerable amount of small pieces of paper, styrofoam, etc. in each bag. In the past, we have had those who rummaged through our garbage bags, left them open and as a result - all the small scraps of paper, styrofoam get carried by the wind, and turn the back of our store into a litter strewn parking lot. My concern was for the environment and that everyone could be happy. As in most cases, there always appear to be 2 sides of a story. If you would like to come in and ask for me, Therese December, I would personally like to extend a 5 coupon.

Bought a baby bible for my nephew's baptism ask the owner to ingrave the bible with his first name middle name and last name. Well when i got there they only had the first and middle name. The manager called back and told me that there is nothing they can do I said well it's your fault that you never contacted me to let me no that you couldn't fit the whole name on the bible. I have called twice to speak with the manager and she will not call me back. I am very disappointed in how the owner is handling there business.

My youngest DD makes her 1st communion next year and this will be the place where I buy all that she needs.

December's offers a large variety of christian items and you can find the perfect gift here.

This is my favorite store. This is where I shop to buy gifts for the grandchildren for baptisim, christining, birthday, birth, etc. They have religous and non religous items. Truely a great reasonable gift shop that I never leave without buying something.

Decembers carries lots of unique christian gifts. We got my daughter some very sweet booties there for her baptism. I would have also purchased her baptismal gown there, had we not been using my husbands, because they had some very adorable gowns. They have lots of unique gifts. We always shop there when we need a gift for a special occasion, such as a First Communion, Baptism, or Confirmation. The prices are reasonable, and we have never been dissatisfied with a purchase.
