Meet Brittney Lockhart of Brittney B Wrapping

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brittney Lockhart.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Christmas was always the most celebrated holiday in my household growing up. I have fond memories of my mother and I gathering our gift wrapping materials in the evening, playing Luther Vandross’s Christmas album, and wrapping gifts. No gift was ever the same, we had over 100 wrapping papers, ribbons, and bows. We would then place them neatly under the tree. So in 2015, I decided to open my business so I could relive those childhood memories and bring joy to other families.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Its been a very slow road, in 2015 I only had one customer who is a close friend of mine. In 2016 I had about 3 customers. 2017 was my breakout year, I still only had a few customers but I had the opportunity to wrap gifts at the Nike store in downtown Chicago.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Brittney B Wrapping – what should we know?
Brittney B Wrapping is a professional gift wrapping services that specialize in personalizing the gift giving experience. It brings me joy that I am able to teach my clients the importance of gift presentation. I have not come across another company in Chicago that puts that personal touch into gift wrapping like I do.

For the most part, you can only go into department stores and choose from about 5 papers and a standard bow. When you come to Brittney B Wrapping you can pick a design that best suits the person receiving the gift.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
My mom deserves the most credit. She gave me those memories of gift wrapping as a child that ultimately pushed me toward starting my business.
