Fraport Tennessee, a division of Fraport USA, announced this week that Nashville Threads has opened at Nashville International Airport (BNA) to provide travelers with a curated selection of unique gifts and wearables designed by local and regional minority artists, artisans, and music industry talent exclusively for airport patrons.
The shop, located in BNA Concourse C, is owned by Nashville residents Jamie Isabel and Karen Anderson-Isabel and specializes in local and regional goods, ranging from T-shirts and apparel showcasing works of area artists, locally distilled liquors, specialty foods, and up-and-coming products.
“Nashville Threads is a vibrant new addition that will thrill passengers with its Nashville and Tennessee merchandise,” said Doug Kreulen, BNA president and CEO. “We’re proud to welcome Nashville Threads as another Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise, and we congratulate Jamie Isabel and Karen Anderson-Isabel on another new venture at BNA. This store and their owners reflect the best of our city and state.”
Nashville Threads joins several new retail outlets that have opened recently at the airport, including James Avery, West End News, True to Tennessee and District News.
“First, I want to extend our warmest congratulations to Jamie and Karen on their exciting new venture,” said Matt Jennings, vice president of Fraport Tennessee. “Their vision for Nashville Threads is what the new concessions program at BNA is all about, celebrating local brands and products for travelers to discover and experience firsthand.”
