Small boxes are $5.00, medium boxes are $8.00 and large boxes are $10.00. Customers may choose from a wide arrangement of wrapping paper, tissue paper, ribbons and bows.

“Last year I couldn’t find a place that would wrap all of my Christmas presents, no matter where I purchased them. So I decided to make one of our stores a place where everyone can get their presents wrapped, and for a great cause too!” said President of Affordables Apparel Zack Kelly. “You are not just getting bows on boxes at Affordables Apparel; you’re donating to the worthwhile charities in the Charleston area.”
