CTA Expands Online Gift Store

November 27, 2012
Just in time for the holiday shopping season, the Chicago Transit Authority is expanding its line of CTA- and Chicago-themed gifts at www.ctagifts.com
 
Among the new items available are cellular phone cases and the latest wooden miniature ‘L’ train car to add to the CTA’s toy train car collection. The gift choices join long-time favorites like the CTA rail map shower curtain and rail map tote bag, offering a wide range of possibilities for the family and friends on your holiday checklist.
 
CTAGifts, which now offers more than 100 products online at CTAGifts.com, is a hassle-free way to make purchases during the holidays and throughout the year.
 
Additional new offerings include hard mobile phone cases for the iPhone 4, 4s and iPhone 5 which are currently available. Cases for popular Android phone brands including the Samsung Galaxy models will be available in early December. Five designs are available on the cases, as well as Sox-35th and Addison station phone covers for baseball fans.
 
CTA recently introduced the new 5000-series trains on the Pink, Green and Red Lines and now the latest design is available as part of CTAGift’s miniature toy train fleet. The wooden train cars connect magnetically and represent each rail line, and are a great gift for children and rail enthusiasts.
Ornament ‘L’ cars are also new to the CTA gift shop. The ornaments are made out of blown glass and are hand-painted.
 
In addition to the new items, CTAGifts will continue to offer unique clothing, accessories, jewelry, stationary, books, posters and DVDs. CTA items for sale include coffee mugs and T-shirts can be personalized to reflect favorite CTA rail lines, stations and bus stops.
 
Coming in 2013: In January, CTA will sell for the first time vintage prints of CTA and Chicago street scene photos. Customers can choose from an archive of images, which can also be printed on a variety of items, including puzzles.
 
Gift certificates are also available. For more information, visit CTAGifts.com.
