Hartsfield-Jackson shops to get makeover

Hartsfield-Jackson International aims to create a local feel in the airport as it revamps the shops in the domestic terminal and concourses.

The plan to award contracts for more than 80 new shops at the world’s busiest airport “furthers our commitment to bring more Atlanta into the airport,” said Hartsfield-Jackson general manager Roosevelt Council.

“We value local talent and concepts that have a sense of place,” Council said.

Hartsfield-Jackson concessions director Chilly Ewing said the airport’s vision includes locally-themed boutiques and shops that make people who come to the airport “excited about finding a certain brand.”

“This is not the same airport that our parents flew through many years ago,” Ewing said.
