Hudson Group wins retail contract for new duty-free stores at Newark Airport

Hudson Group was awarded six new duty-free stores at Newark Liberty International Airport in Terminal B.

As part of a joint venture with Byrd Retail Group, Hudson Group’s contract includes more than 7,500 square feet of expanded retail space inside EWR.

Newark Dufry Shopping will be updated to feature design elements iconic to New Jersey, with inspiration from key areas including Elizabeth, the Ironbound area of Newark, the boardwalks along the state’s 100 miles of coastline, and agricultural touches from the Garden State’s famous farmlands.

The six new stores will open by mid-year 2020 in Terminal B at Newark Airport, providing an assortment of premium, duty-free cosmetics and fragrances, fashion watches, jewelry, sunglasses, tobacco products, fine wines and spirits to one of North America’s busiest commercial airports.

Hudson has extensive experience and presence in both New Jersey and New York including operations at Newark Liberty Internal Airport; John F. Kennedy International Airport; LaGuardia Airport, Atlantic City International Airport and Stewart International Airport. Hudson also supports travelers and commuters in the greater New York and New Jersey area in the Port Authority Bus Terminal, Grand Central Terminal, New York Penn Station, the United Nations Gift Centre and Empire State Building in New York City.

“Hudson is honored to be part of the continued success at Newark Liberty International Airport as we transform travel retail with new duty-free offerings as part of the Newark Dufry store concepts,” said Roger Fordyce, chief executive officer of Hudson Group. “In addition to expanding our strong relationship with our landlord, Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, we are excited to deliver a leading collection of duty-free shopping options for domestic and international customers traveling through Newark Airport.”
