Paradies Lagardère announced plans to bring three retail concepts, including a TripAdvisor traveler-centric store, to Phoenix-Mesa Gateway (AZA) to better serve passenger and employee at the growing airport.
In addition to TripAdvisor, a Paradies Lagardère exclusive brand that will provide travel essentials, the concessionaire is also introducing First Jet Market for convenience items, locally-sourced grab and go foods, and freshly-brewed coffee.
First Jet Market will have a design that plays tribute to the area’s aviation history and also feature an assortment of pre-packaged food offerings from local chef Aaron Chamberlin, owner of Phoenix Public Market Café.
The third concept, Saguaro Mercantile will celebrate the geographic beauty of southern Arizona and offer both travel essentials and an expanded assortment of regional and local gifts, including Rango Honey, Twenty6 Designs, Beneficial Beans, Sarah Madeline Jewelry and others.
“Paradies Lagardère has been a long-time partner with Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport,” says Gregg Paradies, president and CEO, Paradies Lagardère. “We’re excited to continue this relationship with new, innovative concepts designed to enhance the customer experience. The stores will not only offer travel basics, but cutting-edge technology, local gifts, food items and souvenirs, as well as showcase the work of Arizona artists.”
