MAC Cosmetics has opened a store at Indianapolis International Airport, part of a concessions refresh program that has seen the airport introduce 15 outlets.
The new store, MAC Cosmetics’ first at the airport, offers passengers a variety of top beauty products. Located post-security in Concourse B, it is run by Paradies Lagardère, which operates several other retail stores at the airport.
“MAC Cosmetics is a welcome addition to the mix of national and local brands that reflect the diverse range of retail and food-and-beverage concepts at Indianapolis,” said Mario Rodriguez, executive director of the Indianapolis Airport Authority. “MAC’s business model is based on celebrating diversity and individuality, and that philosophy aligns exactly with the airport’s business practices.”
Charity Dress for Success Indianapolis celebrated the grand opening by giving a small group of local women makeovers and professional headshot photos to help them in their job search. The charity works to remove women from poverty by providing them with the confidence, knowledge and professional attire needed to be financially independent and thrive in the workplace. The organization has helped 17,000 women in Indiana.
“We’re not only pleased to open our first MAC store at Indianapolis International Airport, but to partner with and support Dress for Success Indianapolis to celebrate the new store. This event, which gives back to the community, is not only a MAC Cosmetics core value, but ours as well,” said Gregg Paradies, president and CEO, Paradies Lagardère.
