NEW YORK, Jul 27, 2009 / FW/ — There’s a new entry on Victoria Secret’s sexy list – Terminal 4 of New York’s JFK International Airport as premier travel retailer Hudson Group opens a Victoria’s Secret travel concept store.
The 641-square-foot shop is located pre-Security, and is currently Victoria’s Secret’s only travel concept store at an airport in the United States.
The store features a wide range of merchandise, specifically targeted to the traveling consumer, including a colorful collection of panties and an assortment of PINK apparel, the vibrant and fun lifestyle brand that every young girl wants to experience.
The merchandise selection also includes travel accessories: passport holders, luggage tags, sunglasses, key rings and travel-size gifts.
Rounding out the selection are makeup, fragrance and body care products from Victoria’s Secret’s best selling lines, such as Beauty Rush Lip Gloss, Dream Angels(TM) Fragrances, Sexy Little Things, and the well-known Secret Garden collection.
Janice Holden, Chief Commercial Officer, JFK IAT noted: “Victoria’s Secret adds an exciting edge to our retail lineup — the super look and feel of the store is inviting and the well known merchandise never fails to appeal. We appreciate that Hudson Group chose Terminal 4 to showcase this legendary brand, and we are encouraged by the reaction of our passengers based on the store’s initial performance.”
Victoria’s Secret is currently available only in select duty free global locations outside of the United States. The first Victoria’s Secret duty-free airport location was launched in partnership with Dufry in Brazil, the second in Argentina.
The JFK Terminal 4 store is the third in the series, and the first duty-paid entry. Three additional stores are planned for the coming months: one in Dubai, and two in partnership with Dufry in Barbados and in Mexico City International Airport.
