Working in partnership with Warren’s News & Gift and MCSB, Hudson Group promises to deliver a well-curated selection of brands including popular local staples representing Seattle and the Pacific Northwest, such as Elliott Bay Book Company, Filson, Hudson Alki Express, and Something Silver.
In addition to the recent proposal, Hudson Group has continued to enhance Sea-Tac’s retail offerings throughout 2017 with a total of seven Hudson News to Hudson store concept conversions.
It also celebrated the grand opening of Made in Washington – a locally sourced specialty store that features food, arts & crafts, and kitchen products produced by local artisans and craftsmen.
“From kiosks to in-line stores, we are excited to offer customers more choices for dining and retail at Sea-Tac Airport, to build a platform for local chefs and shop owners who celebrate the Pacific Northwest, and to recognise equity and sustainability practices that passengers can feel good about supporting,” says Courtney Gregoire, Commission president at Port of Seattle.
Hudson Group's president and CEO, Joseph DiDomizio, notes: “Our proposed concepts are tailored to create a local sense-of-place for the Sea-Tac traveller, while also providing them with an unparalleled shopping experience.”
These are busy times for the Hudson Group, which today announced that it has signed a 10-year extension to its concessions contract at Pittsburgh International Airport.
Brands represented within this contract include Hudson, Sarris Candies, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Ink by Hudson – Hudson Group’s latest bookstore concept featuring a contemporary style and indie-inspired ethos.
“Pittsburgh International Airport is committed to providing passengers with an enhanced travel retail, food, and beverage experience,” enthuses Eric Sprys, chief commercial officer of the Allegheny County Airport Authority.
“Creating a sense of place is a major initiative as we move forward. We’re happy to build on our relationship with Hudson Group and Fraport through our shared vision to provide travellers with an unparalleled mix of local and national brands.”
