WHSmith-NA Opens New Retail At DEN

WH Smith North America has opened three specialty retail concepts at Denver International Airport (DEN), with Market 5280 and WH Smith in the airport’s A Gates, and River North News in the B Gates.

Market 5280 is a contemporary take on the traditional newsstand, offering a variety of newsstand products, travel essentials, local goods, snacks and drinks, as well as an assortment of Denver-themed apparel, licensed sports apparel, drinkware and souvenirs. River North News is designed to emulate the RiNo arts district in Denver, capturing the area’s creative evolution and bringing an urban, energetic vibrancy to this new travel convenience concept. WH Smith is a one-stop shop for books, magazines, gourmet snacks, refreshments and must have travel essentials while on the go.

All three stores will offer both cold and fresh grab-and-go options from Olive and Finch, a local eatery collective with a mission to serve chef-inspired, scratch-prepared creations that are both nourishing and delicious.

The concepts are operated in collaboration with WH Smith North America’s ACDBE partners Huy Pham with Innovative Retail Concepts, LLC, and Ray Mickens with M2 Concepts, LLC.

“We are so proud of the effort our team has demonstrated to develop these concepts and would like to give special thanks to our ACDBE and airport partners for their help bringing these projects to life,” said Toby Keir, CEO of WH Smith North America. “We had an incredible year of growth in 2023, and the openings at Denver International Airport have been the perfect way to kick off another successful year.”

With these three openings, WH Smith North America now operates a total of 13 retail, convenience and technology stores at DEN including Arts District Market, Flight Stop, Larimer Street Market, five InMotion locations and more.
