FAO Schwarz is coming to Indianapolis International Airport. Hudson Group will build the new store as part of a 10-year agreement with the airport to bring in nine new store concepts as part of an overall refresh of the concessions and retail businesses.
The Indianapolis location follows the previously-announced FAO Schwarz airport stores under construction at New York’s LaGuardia Airport and Chicago’s Midway Airport. The 1,000 square foot locations will include a sampling of FAO Schwarz signature toys and items, as well as FAO Schweetz treats and sweets, and a selection of toys and games from assorted leading brands.
The partnership between FAO and Hudson was first made public last year during the reveal of ThreeSixty Group’s global expansion strategy for the relaunch of the 150-year-old brand.
A 20,000 sq. ft. flagship store was opened at Rockefeller Center in New York City last November.
