Electronics manufacturer Belkin has partnered with concessionaire Hudson Group to open its first airport retail outlet in the newly renovated Terminal 6 (T6) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in California.
Passengers visiting the store will be able to browse a wide selection of Belkin’s tablet and smartphone accessories including chargers, cases and screen protectors, while taking advantage of an in-store charging station.
Erik Burgers, director of sales, Belkin, said, “With the opening of our first retail store at LAX, we are excited to introduce the world to the latest Belkin products in one place. LAX is a major international travel hub, which made it the ideal destination for a Belkin store. As we continue to innovate in the accessories market, this outpost will be a great place for consumers to stock up on the latest chargers and other travel must-haves to power and protect all of their mobile devices.”
John Bradley, merchandising, Hudson Group, said, “Hudson Group has increased the amount of in-store space for electronics consistently each year for the past four years. Consumer electronics accessories are a big seller across the board – especially charging and device protection products. With airport officials predicting a record of 24.5 million passengers passing through the airport this summer, it’s the perfect time to collaborate with Belkin to open a stand-alone storefront in one of the busiest terminals at LAX. We look forward to helping customers and being the traveler’s best friend.”
The T6 renovation project at LAX was completed earlier this year and added a number of restaurants including Blu2o, Osteria by Fabio Viviani, Starbucks Evenings, The Habit Burger Grill, The Marketplace by Wolfgang Puck, and Wahoo’s Fish Taco. The Belkin store is located next to Mac Cosmetics and is open from 6:00am to 12:00am daily.
