Fashionable New Shops Coming To Terminal 1

In less than a year, you will have the chance to travel through our new, modernized Terminal 1. As the weeks count down, we’re getting a clearer view of what the travel experience will be like in the terminal. Now, a huge piece of the picture has been revealed.

Four new stores are set to debut in Terminal 1. There is a definite focus on fashion and local partnerships with these new offerings.

Part bookstore, newsstand and convenience store, One Stop will have two locations on the Terminal 1 concourse. Here, you’ll find travel staples such as snacks, books, magazines and health and beauty items. But there’s a local twist to our two One Stop locations.

Marshall Retail Group, which is the prime concessionaire for the Terminal 1 retail program, is partnering with the Raleigh and Durham convention and visitors bureaus to highlight each city through in-store kiosks. They’ll work with Marshall Retail Group to make available local products, as well as information on attractions, businesses and deals for area visitors.

And yes, there’ll be plenty of sports merchandise from our top college and university teams.
