Hudson Expands Retail Offerings at LaGuardia Airport

by Katie Lee

East Rutherford, N.J. — Hudson, a travel experience leader with more than 1,000 stores in airports, commuter hubs, landmarks and tourist destinations across North America, has expanded the retail offerings at LaGuardia Airport Terminal B, bringing the spirit and vibrancy of New York City to life within the terminal while reaffirming the company’s long-standing commitment to its local roots and airport partners.

As part of the new, 7-year contract with LaGuardia Gateway Partners (LGP), the private operator and developer of Terminal B, Hudson is debuting two of its new localized travel convenience concepts to the reimagined 850,000-square-foot Arrivals and Departures Hall: NYC Aglow by Hudson and Mad Ave Market by Hudson. Opening on June 13, the travel convenience store openings are in alignment with LGP’s and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s (PANYNYJ) redevelopment plans.

With the addition of these two new stores, Hudson’s total retail footprint in Terminal B reaches nine, and includes New York-based brands McNally Jackson and FAO Schwarz, which travelers know and love.

“Airports are a strong representation of the local communities they serve, and are truly the first and last impressions that a traveler has of a city,” says Roger Fordyce, chief executive officer of Hudson. “We have a responsibility to embrace the local history and flavor of a city in our store designs and offerings, and so we’re honored to introduce concepts to LaGuardia that represent the storied history of the airport, the city and Hudson alike.”

NYC Aglow, inspired by the New York City building skylines, welcomes travelers in with its beckoning storefront, providing a sleek and modern shopping experience. To pay homage to the history of New York City, Hudson’s second concept, Mad Ave Market, is inspired by the golden age of advertising in the 1920s. Complete with Art Deco inspired designs, and boasting Hudson’s self-checkout capability, the concept creates nostalgia around one of New York’s most iconic streets, Madison Avenue.

With its first store opening in 1987, Hudson has delivered numerous innovative store concepts to LaGuardia’s travelers. For more than 30 years, Hudson has worked hand-in-hand with the PANYNJ to evolve the travel convenience business and bring travelers the products they’re looking for, including essential electronics, healthy grab-and-go food offerings, health and beauty products — and most recently, a broad assortment of PPE products — keeping travelers safe, connected and comfortable.

The new stores are operated under the HG LGA Retailers JV, a partnership between Hudson and its ACDBE partners Branded Works, Inc., Byrd Retail Group, LLC and Kelle Communications Group, Inc.
