USA. AirMall has opened two retail outlets at Pittsburgh International Airport.
Commonwealth Press (pictured below) specialises in Pittsburgh-themed merchandise ranging from T-shirts and hoodies to posters and koozies, and is located in the Center Core.
Cha-Ching Coin Jewelry (pictured below) is a pop-up offering a handcrafted range of jewellery and accessories taken from “interesting and exotic coins and tokens from around the globe”. It is located in Concourse A.
Additionally, a new system offering traveller-friendly disposable booties and hand sanitizers has been launched at the airport. The DefensePac kits retail for US$3, and consist of four Purell hand sanitizer packets and a pair of medically approved latex-free anti-skid disposable foot covers, packaged in a reusable plastic bag. The clear bags can be used to store personal items when placed in security bins. The first automated dispensing unit at the airport is located in the landside terminal near the security checkpoint (pictured below).
“We are pleased to welcome new retail concepts that demonstrate Pittsburgh International Airport as a best-in-class shopping destination with a strong Sense of Place,” said Pittsburgh International Airport Vice President of Media Relations Bob Kerlik. “We are also excited to announce the all-in-one DefensePac solution, which brings comfort and convenience to the traveling public and is great for passing through security checkpoints.”
DefensePac will also be introduced at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport this summer.
