Hudson Group, along with joint venture partner Branded Works Inc., has been awarded contracts to operate six newsstands in Terminal B and a new bookstore in Terminal A at Newark Liberty International (EWR).
Six Hudson News stores, totaling 6,000 sq. ft. of retail space in Terminal B, and a Hudson Booksellers store, at 1,000 sq. ft., in Terminal A, will bring the total number of stores operated by Hudson and its partners at EWR to 23. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey authorized the new contracts in June.
“Our joint venture team successfully operates many of the retail concessions at Newark Airport,” says Joe DiDomizio, president and CEO of Hudson Group. “We are delighted that Westfield Concession Management, which manages retail concessions at Newark on behalf of the port authority, saw fit to reward our strong performance by offering us the news and gift stores in Terminal B and the bookstore in Terminal A. Hudson has a strong presence in all the PANYNJ airports, rail and bus terminals, where high volume demands an advanced level of operational expertise; we are delighted to add these additional stores to our existing portfolio.”
