The new Salt Lake City International Airport now has something no other airport in the nation offers, at least for now: a LEGO store.
“Marshall Retail Group is honored to open the first-ever LEGO retail store in the United States in an airport,” and it is in Salt Lake City, said Michael C. Wilkins, CEO of the company.
“With their inimitable products and playful atmosphere, we’re confident the LEGO storefront will provide visitors of all ages an unforgettable experience as they travel through the newly constructed Salt Lake City International Airport,” he said. The airport in September opened the first phase of its $4.1 billion replacement project.
The store is in Concourse A, used by Delta Air Lines for its hub operations. It is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
The company said in a news release that the store offers hard-to-find LEGO products, along with top sellers and unique featured items.
They range from toddler-friendly playsets to complex models such as one for the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37.
“We are proud to have the first out of many LEGO airport store in the United States here in Salt Lake City,” said Simon S. Bast, head of sales for Travel Retail Americas. “The LEGO airport store offers a premium retail experience to the travel and engages families, children and adults with a broad range of products.”
Marshall Retail Group is a retailer specializing in airports, casinos and resorts. It has more than 300 stores nationwide, with more than half operating inside 46 airports nationwide.
