Hudson Group, the largest travel retailer in North America offering best-in-class services to traveling customers, was awarded three new specialty retail and travel essentials stores at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) in Terminal 4. The winning bid, a joint venture comprised of Hudson Group and Cambios y Servicios, includes: Hudson (travel essentials), Bunky Boutique (clothing and accessories), and Fire CZ (affordable contemporary jewelry).
“We are pleased to grow our retail program at Phoenix to transform the look, feel, and overall retail experience with new diverse concepts,” said Joe DiDomizio, Hudson Group President & CEO. “We believe The Traveler’s Best Friend service is the perfect choice for our partners at PHX—America’s Friendliest Airport. Our diverse retail offerings will deliver high-quality service and complement the airport’s inviting atmosphere.”
The new stores proposed represent a winning balance of vendors and brands that reflect a local sense of place with a cosmopolitan feel:
- Bunky Boutique, a local brand established in September 2007, has a vibe and shopping experience that is both inviting and unique. Located in downtown Phoenix, the brand helps to shape local fashion trends and culture. Bunky Boutique is a must-stop for PHX passengers, selling clothing and accessories.
- Fire CZ adds luster and excitement to the PHX airport concessions program. The wide-open, customer-friendly design of the shop attracts the eye with its sparkling counters replete with irresistible rings, pendants, bracelets, earrings, and collectibles. Great for any traveler looking for affordable, contemporary jewelry.
- Hudson, Hudson Group’s re-branded, modern concept to Hudson News, is a travel essential store that offers an upscale, high tech market theme with a native feel. Hudson prides itself on being The Traveler’s Best Friend, offering items to appeal to the wants and needs of traveling consumers, including electronic accessories, popular magazines and newspapers, beverages, snacks, health, beauty, and more. This will be the airport’s first Hudson location.
Hudson Group currently operates Hudson News, Valley of the Sun, Hudson Booksellers, and Sweet Indulgences in Terminal 4 at PHX.
