ORLANDO– WH Smith North America, incorporating Marshall Retail Group (MRG) – America’s leading specialty retailer in the airport marketplace, has partnered with Orlando International Airport (MCO) to open its first concepts in the Orlando area. Main Streets Market, City Arts Market, The Scoop and Replenish are now open at the airport’s South terminal.
With a design inspired by various neighborhoods in Orlando, Main Streets Market is a charming and energetic retail space that provides everything needed for a long flight or layover. Main Streets Market offers travelers a mix of local vendors with national brands, like Einstein Bagels and Coffee.
City Arts Market replicates the character of the arts community in Orlando and brings a unique design that matches the creative feel of the arts district. The retail space showcases a wide array of local art displayed as store décor. In a partnership with non-profit venues CityArts Factory and the Downtown Arts District, City Arts Market promotes the district, as well as local artisans and makers, giving travelers an original perspective on Orlando.
Providing travelers with ready access to important headlines of the day and a well-curated assortment of convenience products, The Scoop is a bold and striking concept, drawing from the black and white world of the printed page. Approachable from the front and both sides, The Scoop is inviting yet stylish with its clean lines and modern details.
Created in partnership with Illy Coffee, Replenish is an open-air kiosk serving as a one-stop shop to grab all the essentials. The design elements at Replenish were chosen to complement Illy’s strong red presence and boasts natural wood tones, and white and rose gold accents, for a calming quick stop for travelers.
“It’s so exciting to see our company continue to expand into new markets, like Orlando. I am always impressed with our team’s commitment to creating unique concepts inspired by each market we enter, and we have really captured the essence of Orlando with these stores,” said Toby Keir, CEO of WH Smith North America. “We are thankful to our partnership with Greater Orlando Aviation Authority for the opportunity to bring our concepts to MCO, and we look forward to what is ahead as our partnership continues.”
