By Wendy Morley

Ink by Hudson is just one of the new stores in Tucson opening under the Hudson Group umbrella; offering books, toys, artwork, fashion and indulgences, its design is Tucson inspired

Hudson Group, a wholly owned subsidiary of Dufry AG, recently announced the opening of three new stores and three kiosks at Tucson International Airport, including the new concept “Ink by Hudson,” featuring a contemporary style and indie-inspired design and ethos. For these openings, Hudson Group partnered with Poravion, LLC and Cambios y Servicios Inc. to announce the new stores and kiosks, totaling more than 567 square meters.

Ink by Hudson, located on Concourse B, totals 93 square meters and features a curated assortment of bestsellers, small press titles, classics, prizewinners, local favorites, and a unique selection of toys, stationery, fashion, artwork, travel essentials and indulgences. The design incorporates local elements including weathered wood beams and Southwest imagery throughout.

Hudson Ft. Lowell, also located on Concourse B, is a travel essentials and convenience shop. Its 186 square meters offers travel essentials, convenience necessities, tasteful local souvenirs and electronics. It also features a large Arizona Sports shop-in-shop with apparel and other memorabilia.

Hudson Gates Pass, located on Concourse A, is a 235 square-meter travel essentials and convenience store that pays tribute to the scenic Gates Pass along the crest of the Tucson Mountains. This store features a large Tech on the Go shop-in-shop, an expanded Destinations regional gifts and souvenirs selection, and fresh, healthy grab-and-go salads and sandwiches.

Mission Market, located on Concourse B, comprises three kiosks offering 56 square meters including including Belkin (electronics specialty store), Sunglass Icon (high-end sunglass retail shop) and Spirit (Native American and Western specialty store).     

“One of our goals at Tucson International Airport is to provide our passengers with a unique blend of local retail experiences alongside those items travelers expect to find and we are pleased with how Hudson Group has partnered with us to deliver on that goal,” said Bonnie Allin, President and CEO of the Tucson Airport Authority. “Tucson is home to the third largest book festival in the United States, The Tucson Festival of Books. We are especially excited that Hudson Group has featured Tucson’s Festival in its newest book store concept Ink at Tucson International Airport.”

“Hudson Group is thrilled to partner with Tucson International Airport to bring our iconic retail concepts to life, offering Tucsonans broader shopping options than ever before,” said Joseph DiDomizio, President & CEO of Hudson Group, Division CEO North America of Dufry. “As the Traveler’s Best Friend, we are especially proud to announce Ink by Hudson, our newest bookselling concept.”

Hudson Group will open Arroyo Trading Post and Tucson Tienditas at the airport in the fall.
