Paradies Lagardère and TripAdvisor have partnered to create two new travel essentials stores at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) at Gate A14, and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) in Terminal 4.
TripAdvisor, a travel review website, helps more than 455 million monthly visitors make choices on accommodations, restaurants and more worldwide. TripAdvisor stores offer travel essentials, and each store also features an interactive screen that allows travelers to explore reviews and photos from the surrounding area.
Paradies Lagardère opened its first TripAdvisor store in Toronto Pearson International Airport (YZZ) in 2017.
Gregg Paradies, president and CEO at Paradies Lagardère, says the concept fits with the goal of creating enhanced customer experiences and staying on the cutting edge of innovation and technology offerings. “The TripAdvisor travel essential concepts both include an interactive tool that’s entertaining, fun, and truly useful in helping travelers,” he says. “We’re thrilled to continue to bring this pioneering travel essential store to airports throughout North America, and this unique store is a great addition to the already strong retail programs at IAH and PHX.”
