CO Company Store (at the "DO")

Hi all,

Does anyone know how to contact the company store we visited during the headquarters tour at the "Do?" My order hasn't arrived here and I was too excited after the catering event to make sure I had the phone number written down. I've done a search on FT and CO.com with no luck. Thanks!

Maybe try calling the main HQ telephone number at 713-324-2950?

No problem. I meant to add they have some odd hours (like 10AM-3PM). I'm glad you got through.

This company store was striking for its "near free" pricing. I particularly cherish the $2 money clip I bought, with a very unobtrusive but proud CO icon.

Only negative was most of the CO logo gear (shirts, sweatshirts, etc...) had the logo on the sleeve and not on the chest. The girl working the till said that's been a major complaint, but how the shirt maker thought it was a brilliant idea.

Am I the only one who found the choices lacking at the CO store? I had visions of furnishing myself and my surrondings with t-shirts, cool mugs, elite access carpets, sheer F curtains etc....Only to find L, XL, XXXXXL clothing, lot's of golf gear etc. Only managed to go home with an inflatable airplane (777 I think) and a new laynard for my employee ID. I think I have to switch to AA, they have a cool online store

If you're in the market for a blue Elite Access carpet from the 'Do, I have two that I can sell you

I bought lots of goodies that even the PC angels here in AUS haven't seen, including the neat $2 jet key chain with its blinking lights and jet sounds, a little jet with the same lights and sounds but that pushes back, fine looking luggage tags, a pink CO visor, and my fav -- a little stuffed toy jet that is actually a cell phone holder. Everyone wants that little guy!

I'm ready to go shopping again!

Missed it...

Trip to San Diego kept me from the DO (and dammit, I'm in Houston). IS there any way to access any of that cool CO merchandise online, catalog, etc?

I'm supposed to call back on Monday for an update on my order and will make sure to ask about a paper or online catalog that we can use to shop. My little guy would love the stuffed 747 plush toy, but I didn't have enough hands free to carry one home. I'll post an update in the morning.
