Romulus — The Wayne County Airport Authority board approved a new program Wednesday for the McNamara Terminal at Detroit Metropolitan Airport that’s expected to net $13 million in retailer investment and introduce specialty shops.
Over the next year, travelers can expect to see brands including The Body Shop, Spanish fashion label Desigual and The Economist as well as redesigned spots for stores such as Brighton Collectibles, Brooks Brothers and PGA TOUR Shop, airport officials announced.
Also new to the terminal are several concepts to debut in any airport worldwide. Those include the first retail outlet for the NBC morning show “Today”; Time magazine’s first newsstand; the first airport boutiques for Dylan’s Candy Bar and NBC News; and the first airport location in the Americas for Porsche Design, which features luggage, gifts and accessories inspired by the luxury car.
The new program also is set to include the family-owned, Birmingham-based Mills Pharmacy + Apothecary and, in its airport debut, Michigan fitness retailer Running Fit.
