Detroit Airport to Introduce New Retail Program
October 18, 2012
The Detroit Metropolitan Airport’s (DTW) McNamara Terminal will undergo a transformation that will include six new airport retail concepts. The new program, which will consist of a more than $13 million retailer investment in the airport, will include the first-ever retail outlet for NBC’s morning show “TODAY,” TIME magazine’s first newsstand, and the first airport boutiques for Dylan’s Candy Bar, NBC News and Porsche Design. The program also will introduce The Body Shop, Spanish fashion label Desigual, EA SPORTS, The Economist, Johnston & Murphy, The New York Times, PANDORA, Spanx, Tim Horton’s and The Wall Street Journal, and reintroduce Brighton Collectibles, Brooks Brothers, Brookstone, Caribou Coffee, CNBC Smartshop, Erwin Pearl, PGA TOUR Shop and Starbucks in redesigned venues. In addition to new and national brands, several local, specialty stores will also be a part of the new program, including the family-owned, Birmingham, Mich.-based Mills Pharmacy + Apothecary and Michigan fitness retailer Running Fit. The new retail contracts will be phased-in over the next year.
