Free gifts and music at Raleigh-Durham Int’l Airport on Customer Appreciation Day

North Carolina’s Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) is having a party this Friday (October 9th, 2009) as part of the airport’s annual Customer Appreciation Day.  On the agenda: free music, free gifts, and a chance to win free airplane tickets and other prizes.


During the event, The Shops of RDU restaurants will offer samples of  signature menu items, specialty retail shops will hand out giveaways items, and some airlines will hold drawings for free tickets.

The event, which is part of National Customer Service Week, will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the airport’s parking garage atrium.


But wait… there’s more!  The TSA, the USO, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and other organizations and agencies will have exhibits, there’ll be live Calypso and Dixieland jazz music, and there will be drawings for gifts from airport shops.

Don’t you wish every day was Customer Appreciation Day?
