Container Store, Southwest Airlines Team on Gift Wrapping
Posted on December 22, 2015 by
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.
“Both The Container Store and Southwest Airlines are passionate about service and also love spreading joy with our customers each and every day,” said Casey Shilling, vice president of public relations and marketing communications for The Container Store. “What better way to spread holiday cheer and smiles than by treating travelers with stunning gift packaging from our expert employees while they are facing their busy holiday trips.”
