Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport (MKE) and retail partner Paradies Lagardère announced this week the opening of a free-standing branded SPANX store at the airport.

The SPANX store is located pre-security in the MKE Main Terminal, making this sought-after merchandise available for travelers and the local community. Customers can purchase SPANX’s leggings, denim, shapewear and athleisure wear at the same great prices that are available on SPANX’s website.

“We are excited to officially open SPANX and celebrate the grand finale of our major refresh of our shops at MKE,” said Brian Dranzik, MKE director. “This will be a fun location pre-security for the traveling public and for the local community that wishes to shop at MKE’s unique stores.”

The SPANX store is part of a major transformation of nearly two dozen shops that started at the airport in 2019. The MKE agreement with Paradies Lagardère includes 30 percent participation from local Disadvantaged Business Enterprises, which exceeds the County’s goal of 25 percent.

“We are very excited to connect two of our amazing partners, SPANX and the Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport, to complete this outstanding new retail program, designed specifically for MKE,” said Gregg Paradies, president and CEO of Paradies Lagardère. “With its powerful brand recognition and iconic fashion, SPANX will deliver an exciting shopping experience and quickly become a favorite retail destination in Milwaukee.”
