Detroit Metropolitan Airport has awarded The Paradies Shops a seven-year concession to operate new retail outlets in its showpiece McNamara Terminal.
According to the airpoert, the newly awarded concepts are a combination of popular national and regional brands, all proposed with the demographics of the McNamara Terminal in mind.
Making their airport debuts at Detroit Metro (DTW) will be several exclusive Paradies concepts: Dylan’s Candy Bar, the iconic candy emporium known for its signature chocolate and candy treats created by Dylan Lauren; NBC News, a newsstand dedicated to the ightly news programme; and Running Fit, an Ann Arbor favourite offering athletic apparel and shoes from top brands.
“When the McNamara Terminal opened in 2002, it swept industry awards and traveller rankings for unmatched customer satisfaction, so it’s only fitting that The Paradies Shops – one of our original partners at McNamara Terminal that has consistently combined unique concepts with stellar service – will continue to be a strong part of our retail programme for the next decade,” says Wayne County Airport Authority CEO Tom Naughton.
“We are especially pleased that The Paradies Shops is partnering with local retailers to introduce Michigan-based brands into the Terminal.”
Paradies’ full award includes CNBC News featuring Tim Horton’s, the first of many anticipated TODAY stores, Brighton Collectibles, Brooks Brothers, EA SPORTS, The New York Times Bookstore, PANDORA, PGA TOUR Shop, SPANX, The Body Shop, Brookstone, Soundbalance and Johnston and Murphy.
