From gift items, watches, handbags and fragrances, to personal care products, home goods and even an extensive range of exercise equipment. We strive to be your number one store for all you need, whether it’s for yourself, for a friend or for the home.

The Journey

The Gift Centre was established out of necessity. Victor & Doris Lewis, proud parents of seven, found it necessary to find gifts quite frequently for family and especially for their children’s friends. At the time there were few gift stores and so the idea was born. On 26th August 1991 The Gift Centre opened its doors on Regent Street with a simple blessing and humble beginnings. In February 1996, a fire destroyed the building in Regent Street which was being rented. It was a great challenge but was overcome with the great mercy and graces of God. It was during this dark time  that customers, friends and family supported the Lewis family beyond words. Later that year, the business was relocated to its current location in Hadfield Street. This move made it possible for upgrades such as a computerized billing system, air conditioning for our customers’ convenience and the availability of better parking facilities. In 1999, a new branch store was opened at Alexander Street, Kitty but this was closed within a few years. However, it didn’t stop the momentum.

Where we are today

Along this journey, all seven children have all contributed their time and talent to the growth of the business and even their own businesses; two of their business ventures have been John Lewis Styles in 2003 and Shoe Source in 2008. Today, while Mr. & Mrs. Lewis have retired, the siblings still carry on the business with a team of dedicated staff who know the value of each and every customer. We at The Gift Centre continue to aspire for perfection, with professionalism and integrity.
