Traveling is becoming more efficient with startup’s focus on luggage rental, local entrepreneurs discussed ups and downs in business with TCU students, and Dallas’ Office of Cultural Affairs is getting refreshed with the help of a new employee.
GoForth& is a new Dallas-based luggage rental startup. The company says renting your luggage from it gets rid of the hassle of buying expensive luggage, using it once or twice, and then having it take up a lot of space. With GoForth&, users can mail the luggage back once they return from a trip. And speaking of traveling, in 2018, parking at Dallas Love Field also will be easier. A nine-floor, $208 million garage is under construction by the main terminal, and it will include sensors to keep track of available parking spots, ticket pay stations, and license plate readers to help you find your car if you forgot where you parked. The Dallas Morning News has more about the garage here.
