BALTIMORE, Oct. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AIRMALL® USA, the leading airport concessions developer in North America and operator of the AIRMALL at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI Marshall), is offering travelers two new luxury shopping destinations with the opening of Kiehl's (627 sq. ft) and Tumi (587 sq.ft.) on the B/C Connector.
"Today's traveler wants a variety of shopping options at the airport, including luxury retail and brands that they know and trust," said Brett Kelly, vice president of AIRMALL Maryland. "Kiehl's and Tumi bring premium products for the discerning shopper, and we're very pleased to welcome these new brands to the program."
Kiehl's offers travelers a selection of premium skin, hair and body care products. For 160 years, Kiehl's has taken an old-world apothecary approach to skin care, with products made from the finest naturally-derived ingredients. The new store's interior at BWI Marshall is funky and eclectic and includes brick, wood, and leather finishes. Travelers are welcomed into the store by Mr. Bones, Kiehl's famous lab coat clad skeleton mascot. Kiehl's is operated by Olde Mill, the same operator that brings Swarovski and America! to the AIRMALL at BWI Marshall.
For more than 30 years, Tumi has been recognized as one of the world's leading designers of high-quality, luxury travel, business and lifestyle accessories. Passengers at the AIRMALL at BWI Marshall can purchase a wide variety of travel essentials, including luggage, messenger bags, totes, and other accessories. Tumi's award-winning designs place them in a category all their own with fashionable, modern products that deliver durability, innovation and performance.
"These new offerings will bring a high level of service and quality products for our BWI Marshall customers," said Paul J. Wiedefeld, chief executive officer of BWI Marshall. "Kiehl's and Tumi are both widely-recognized, premium brands that travelers will appreciate."
Both stores are open daily from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. and are part of a $15-million upgrade to the concessions program that will occur over the next two years. The project includes the creation of the B/C connector, representing 9,000 square feet of additional concessions space.
