Abstract

The present invention is directed to a package or container made of folded cardboard or the like and more particularly to a container intended to be used in conjunction with a marketing display rack. The container is characterized in that the same is provided with a reinforced support member which reduces the likelihood of the container being inadvertantly separated from the point of purchase display. Removal of the element providing the support feature also functions to open the package. Means are created as a result of the removal of the supporting portions for subsequent reclosing of the container.

  1. 1. A reclosable package comprising an integral blank printed on one face, said package including an enclosed space in the general shape of a rectangular parallelepiped defined by front, rear, top and bottom walls, having said one face directed outwardly, each of said front and top walls being joined to others of said walls along two parallel fold lines, said rear wall being connected to said top wall along a single fold line and having a downwardly directed free edge, a rear panel member joined to said bottom wall along a first fold line coincident with the rear margin thereof, said rear panel extending upwardly parallel to said rear wall and therebeyond, a slit formed in said rear wall defining a tongue including a tip directed toward said bottom wall, said rear panel being folded forwardly toward said rear wall along a second line parallel to said first fold line to define a depending tab interposed between said rear wall and the wall adjacent face of said panel, the end margin of said tab terminating at a level along said rear wall above said bottom wall, registering rack retainer apertures formed in said tab and back panel to define a double thickness mounting support for engagement with a display rack, an adhesive connection formed between said tab and said rear wall and a score line formed across said panel at a position between said adhesive line and said bottom wall whereby said package may be opened by separating said adhesive line and may be reclosed by severing said panel along said score line and inserting the remaining portions of said panel into the space defined between said bottom wall and said rear wall, said tab in said reclosed condition of said package being disposed within said slit with said tongue, engaging one surface of said tab and said rear wall engaging the other surface of said tab, thereby frictionally to retain said tab in said reclosed position.
