Greentop’s Target Market Explodes With Big Box Retailer Online Presence Introducing Clarence Claus™ And Multicultural Representation
Atlanta, GA (September 23, 2022) – Have you ever gotten a thank you for writing a thank you note? It’s just so unexpected these days to receive a handwritten note full of gratitude. The same can be said for gift wrapping. When someone takes the time to pick the prettiest paper, bag and topping, it makes your presents known! Greentop Gifts – makers of multicultural celebration décor that mirror the skin tone and hair textures of its recipients — now has a presence at Target.com.
“When I launched Greentop Gifts in 2016, the idea of families using our products as part of their holiday celebrations brought me so much joy,” revealed Greentop Gifts Founder & CEO Jacquelyn Rodgers. “As a small woman-owned business, so many of you have asked when we would go into retail stores. Well, the moment has arrived thanks to your support and encouragement. Clarence Claus™ and our Celebration Crew are now available online at Target.”
Clarence Claus, the jolly brown Santa, is a nod to Greentop Gifts founder’s late father, and his father, the owner of Greentop restaurant in Hillsborough, NC. In the 1940s and ’50s it was remembered as a place of fellowship and happy family gatherings. This holiday season, the red suited Claus is making his presence known on gift bags and rolls of wrapping paper. Clarence Claus Gift Wrap ($7) boasts Clarence with his brown sack of gifts. The background color is white with a full-body multi-colored image of Clarence. The Cub Clarence Claus Gifts & Ribbons Gift Bag Green ($3) is designed with red handles. Cub Clarence Claus Gift Bag Red ($3) is as colorful as the holidays with a hand waving Clarence on a red background with white handles.
The first thing you notice about the eye-catching Cub Children Gift Bag Purple ($3) are the four little girls’ natural hair styles from puffs and braids to gorgeous coils of curls. Cub Children Gift Bag Blue ($3) spotlights three brown skinned boys with bright eyes and even brighter smiles!
Gingerbread and gumdrops are themes throughout this pretty Holiday 2022 collection. Children with Gingerbread Gift Wrap Blue ($7) features 27 sq., feet of crisp paper showcasing three boys with braids, curls, and fades. Girls with curls get their turn with Children with Gumdrops Gift Wrap Purple ($7) on a crisp violet background sprinkled with candy canes, gumdrops and lollipops.
Sometimes anticipation of all those brightly wrapped presents is really hard to resist. Clarence Claus reminds little ones to wait until December 25 with the whimsical Clarence Claus ‘Do Not Open Until Christmas’ Gift Wrap ($7).
Mom influencers are gushing about the appeal (finally!) of diversity in childhood pleasures like gift wrapping.
“Gift giving just got more exciting,” wrote curlygirl_careena, “now that we’ve discovered @greentopgifts .
