As Holiday Season Approaches, HMSHost Brings Luxury Shopping to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport

New Retail Esplanade makes holiday shopping a breeze for travelers

ATLANTA, GA – HMSHost and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport are welcoming holiday travelers to seven new shops in the airport’s beautiful new boulevard of stores, located on the international Concourse F. With the busiest holiday travel season just days away, travelers heading overseas will find shopping a breeze in this attractive row of high-end shops.

“Now that we’re in our busy holiday travel period, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is pleased to offer our customers the chance to shop right here at the Airport,” said Louis Miller, Aviation general manager. “Customers looking for a last-minute gift or something special for themselves will have plenty of options from which to choose.”

Giving a unique twist to classic American style, Tommy Hilfiger is a truly international status brand. The innovative and high-quality apparel for men and women appeals to customers of all backgrounds, nationalities and ages.

Travelers looking for the highest-quality make-up and skin care products will be elated to find well-known brands MAC and Kiehl’s making appearances at Hartsfield-Jackson. As a leading name in the luxury cosmetics industry, MAC regularly makes the headlines in top fashion magazines. For more than 160 years, Kiehl’s has been creating effective skin, body and hair care products using a unique blend of the cosmetic, pharmaceutical, herbal and medicinal remedies. This is the second Kiehl’s store at Hartsfield-Jackson following a highly successful location on Concourse B.

Touch Table, a “next-generation” tech store, offers a comprehensive line of mobile technology products from the world’s leading brands. Customers can interact with every product before purchasing on the interactive, touch-screen information table, a truly unique experience for any airport traveler.

Traveling fashionistas will be delighted to find top designer brands at Luxury Boutique, CLUTCH and Sunglass Icon. At Luxury Boutique, some of the world’s leading luxury brands come together to create an elegant and alluring shopping opportunity. With a fashion-forward collection of handbags from top name designers like DKNY, Longchamp and Kooba, CLUTCH is a bag lover’s paradise. Whether you’re looking for high-end fashion wear or a sportier, active style, Sunglass Icon offers more styles and brands at any given time than anyone else, including Bulgari, Juicy Couture, RayBan and Oakley.

“We took a very innovative approach for this highly visual space on Concourse F. Instead of shop-in-shops in one very large space, we chose to create a boulevard of individual stores,” said Joan Ryzner, Senior Vice President of Retail at HMSHost. “This allowed us to offer highly desirable brands, creating a shopping experience reflective of those found in high-end street side environments.”
