Container Store, Southwest Airlines Team on Gift Wrapping
December 22, 2015,
DALLAS—The Container Store is aligning with Southwest Airlines to offer free gift wrapping to travelers at seven airports throughout the nation tomorrow.
From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., representatives of the two companies will wrap gifts for travelers at Love Field here, Midway Airport in Chicago, Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood Airport in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Denver International Airport, Seattle/Tacoma International Airport, Hartsfield/Jackson Atlanta International Airport and San Francisco International Airport. The Container Store’s representatives will use a variety of styles and patterns from their collections of gift packaging to wrap up the gifts. They will also share secrets of wrapping like a professional while travelers wait, including demonstrations on how to create a homemade pom-pom bow.
The Transportation Security Administration has advised airport travelers not to wrap their gifts in carry-on or checked luggage for screening purposes. This will force many travelers to pack their bags with unwrapped gifts, according to a Container Store statement.
