WH Smith North America, incorporating Marshall Retail Group (MRG) , has partnered with Orlando International Airport (MCO) to open its first concepts in the Orlando area.
Main Streets Market, City Arts Market, The Scoop, and Replenish are now open at the airport’s South terminal.
City Arts Market replicates the character of the arts community in Orlando and brings a unique design that matches the creative feel of the arts district, according to WH Smith. The retail space showcases a wide array of local art displayed as store décor. In a partnership with non-profit venues CityArts Factory and the Downtown Arts District, City Arts Market promotes the district itself, as well as local artisans and makers.
Created in partnership with Illy Coffee, Replenish is an open-air kiosk serving as a one-stop shop stocking the essentials. Its design elements were chosen to complement Illy’s strong red presence and boast natural wood tones with white and rose gold accents, for a calming quick stop for travellers.
“It’s exciting to see our company continue to expand into new markets like Orlando. I am always impressed with our team’s commitment to creating unique concepts inspired by each market we enter, and we have really captured the essence of Orlando with these stores,” said Toby Keir, CEO of WH Smith North America. “We are thankful to our partnership with Greater Orlando Aviation Authority for the opportunity to bring our concepts to MCO, and we look forward to what is ahead as our partnership continues.”
