Boxworks is way more than just gift-wrapping
Since it opened in 1991, the Utica Square store has provided its professional gift-wrapping and on-site shipping services. Today, it also offers unique gifts and more.
When you finish wrapping a gift, is it a tangle of tape, a series of jagged seams and a debacle of bulging, uneven corners? If so, there is help: Boxworks.
Since it opened in 1991, the Utica Square store has provided its professional gift-wrapping and on-site shipping services via UPS or FedEx. The late Theresa Parker brought the Chicago-based franchise to Tulsa. Today it’s the only location remaining; Parker bought the rights to the name and kept the Tulsa store open.
Boxworks has always had a wide variety of gifts, too. “We have a lot of brands that other stores don’t usually carry,” says storeowner Rachel Brimer, who bought the shop in March 2016 from Kara Martin, Parker’s stepdaughter who owned it for 11 years.
Its children’s items include stuffed toys, books, school supplies, craft items and retro toys, Brimer says.
Brimer says she also wants to focus on stocking the store with one-of-a-kind pieces. “We seldom order the same thing twice,” she says. “My goal is to provide our clients with new and unique products that can’t be found anywhere else in Tulsa.”
Ultimately, Brimer credits the success of Boxworks to its gift-wrapping and shipping services. “We are the only place in Tulsa that offers seamless gift-wrapping on such a professional level,” she says
