Hudson Debuts Expansive Shop-In-Shop Experience Store - Evolve by Hudson 
2021-08-05 / 17:35 
Diverse Selection Of Leading Retail Brands Team Up With Hudson For A Convenience-Driven Concept Designed To Attract And 
Engage Travelers Through One-Stop Shopping 
East Rutherford, N.J., August 5, 2021 - Hudson, a Dufry company and travel experience leader with more than 1,000 
stores in airports, commuter hubs, landmarks and tourist destinations across North America, today revealed its plans 
for Evolve by Hudson (Evolve), a new shop-in-shop store that will blend a specialty brand experience with the 
accessibility of travel essentials to create an immersive, customer-centric shopping destination. 
By reimagining the convenience and seamless experience of one-stop shopping that is often associated with Hudson 
stores, while incorporating complementary brands from both Hudson's and Dufry's nationally and globally-recognized 
portfolios, Evolve represents the evolution of traditional travel retail, moving towards larger integrated store 
'The strategy we've executed over the years has positioned the Hudson brand as an iconic and trusted anchor of the 
airport experience for travelers and landlords alike. Now, as we're witnessing the dynamic transformation of the retail 
space, we're taking the opportunity to further leverage what makes it successful: convenience and brand recognition,' 
said Brian Quinn, EVP and Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Hudson. 'Our new Evolve store will transform larger retail 
footprints, with the existing Hudson convenience model in mind, to curate a multi-brand concept that will allow Hudson 
to continuously innovate for the modern travel retail environment now and into the future.' 
The first Evolve store is set to land at Nashville International Airport (BNA) later this summer, followed by seven 
additional locations including Dallas Love Field Airport (DAL) and Las Vegas McCarran International Airport (LAS). 
Transforming The In-Store Experience Through Reimagined Store Design & Layout 
Each Evolve store will be designed with a wide-open storefront, a footprint of at least 2,000-square-feet, and 
eye-catching digital signage on the store exterior, providing a unique glimpse into the brand offerings right from the 
Once inside the expansive store, a circular traffic flow will seamlessly guide travelers around the centrally-located 
floor displays and out towards the specialty shop-in-shop walls. Stopping at any of the shop-in-shops along the way, 
travelers will delight to see that the distinguishable identity, style, and design of the brands that they know and 
love have been authentically recreated within Evolve. 
Further amplifying a convenient and effortless shopping experience inside, a variety of different checkout options will 
be available to meet the unique shopping preferences of travelers. In addition to a traditional checkout experience, 
each Evolve store will feature multiple state-of-the-art self-checkout kiosks as well as Hudson's newly-developed 
mobile point of sale (POS) capabilities, which will enable Hudson team members to complete transactions from anywhere 
on the sales floor and spend more time assisting travelers at the brand shop-in-shops. 
Going Places, Together: Celebrating The Power Of Brand Partnerships 
Building on the success of Hudson's first shop-in-shop partnership with Sunglass Hut, as well as its ability to create 
blended store concepts such as Ink by Hudson and Dunkin', Evolve represents Hudson's latest venture into developing 
integrated brand experiences. 
Now, by expanding the number of brands signed on as strategic shop-in-shop partners, Hudson continues to redefine the 
idea of one-stop shopping, creating unparalleled accessibility for travelers and providing new avenues for retail 
partnerships to incrementally grow their brand presence and footprint in flexible, non-traditional concepts. 
"We are thrilled to partner with Hudson, especially given the pent-up demand for travel that will be unleashed in the 
coming months. The Art of Shaving prides itself in having a comprehensive, luxurious, and barber-endorsed lineup of 
skincare products that are made from fine botanical ingredients. Personal health and hygiene are more important now 
than ever and we know grooming plays a critical role in this self-care," said Falguni Desai, CEO and Managing Director, 
The Art of Shaving. 
At The Intersection of Local & Global: Products For Every Traveler On The Go 
Evolve will feature a selection of nationally-recognized and up-and-coming local brands highlighted in seven 
carefully-curated product categories. Designed to inject moments of discovery throughout the entire shopping 
experience, no two Evolve stores will be the same - from the store layout to the product offering. The selection and 
number of brands represented in each store will be specifically tailored to the unique airport destination, with the 
flexibility to quickly interchange brands based upon demand, seasonality, or trend changes. 
To further ensure elevated personalized service is at the center of each traveler's shopping experience, the 
shop-in-shops will be staffed by knowledgeable Hudson team members serving as brand ambassadors, offering product 
demonstrations and backed with deep product expertise and training.
