Hudson Group
opened 3 new stores and 3 new kiosks at the Tucson International Airport, including their second Ink by Hudson concept store, testing a less-terrible bookstore format that looks more like, well, a bookstore. (The first one opened a year ago at the Dallas airport.) The Ink store "features a contemporary style and indie-inspired design and ethos" and "built around a core offering of books...conceived as a cultural hub to the airport community." The 1,000-square-foot stores "features a curated assortment of bestsellers, small press titles, classics, prizewinners, local favorites, and a unique selection of toys, stationery, fashion, artwork, travel essentials and indulgences."
