Hudson Group has signed a seven-year contract extension with Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC). This contract extension includes the opening of a new 2,000 square foot Hudson store.

“We’re excited to partner with Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC) to give more travelers the chance to discover our products and portfolio of offerings,” says Joseph DiDomizio, president and chief executive officer of Hudson Group. “As the Traveler’s Best Friend, we look forward to maintaining and building on our strong relationship with the ROC management team and the state of New York through our shared exceptional commitment to better serve travelers and improve the overall experience.”

This addition joins Hudson Group’s latest openings at ROC, which are part of a $79.4 million redevelopment of the airport. The improvements are being supported by Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s $200 million Upstate Airport Economic Development and Revitalization Competition.

“As a significant economic driver in our community, our Airport supports over 10,000 jobs and generates over $800 million in economic activity,” says Cheryl Dinolfo, Monroe County Executive for the state of New York . “As part of our ongoing ROC renovation project, we’re working with vendors like Hudson to provide an enhanced shopping experience to travelers with a diverse array of needs. The new, innovative Hudson store reflects our shared commitment to providing an outstanding passenger experience from start to finish.”

Hudson Group also plans to open two additional stores at ROC in the fall.
