LAS VEGAS – Marshall Retail Group (MRG), a WH Smith Company and one of America’s leading specialty retailers in the airport marketplace, is pleased to announce the opening of its latest Welcome to Las Vegas Gift Shop located inside New York New York Hotel & Casino. This newly opened shop is a testimony to MRG’s exponential growth and marks the 27th Welcome to Las Vegas storefront in the valley since the concept’s launch in 1996.
The 4,375-square-foot Welcome to Las Vegas Gift Shop pays tribute to the iconic Welcome to Las Vegas sign, one of the most fabulous and photographed landmarks in the world. The store features an elevated aesthetic with updated graphics that nod to the ever-changing nature of Las Vegas. The host of vintage graphics includes the sequin-embellished “Showgirl” (Sue Johansson) from the Casino de Paris in 1977, which brings a sense of Las Vegas nostalgia inside the shopping center. Customers are taken back in time to the glitz and glamour of vintage Las Vegas as images of iconic Vegas signs from The Neon Museum line the upper walls. The store also pays homage to New York New York Hotel & Casino with a replica of the original New York New York sign on display.
The store offers an endless array of souvenirs and keepsakes for guests in a one-stop gift shop including Las Vegas branded men’s and women’s T-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, shot glasses, socks, snacks, and more. Welcome to Las Vegas will also carry a wide assortment of Vegas Golden Knights and Las Vegas Raiders merchandise.
“The opening of our 27th Welcome to Las Vegas store is an exciting accomplishment for our team and an incredible testament to Marshall Retail Group’s remarkable growth over the past several years,” said Toby Keir, CEO of Marshall Retail Group. “We’re thrilled to be expanding our presence on the Strip and New York New York Hotel & Casino is the perfect location for the newest Welcome to Las Vegas store.”
The Welcome to Las Vegas Gift Shop at New York New York is open Sunday – Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Friday – Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – midnight.
