SACRAMENTO (July 12, 2019) – Marshall Retail Group (MRG) announces the opening of its newest baggallini® handbag kiosk located inside Terminal A at the Sacramento International Airport (SMF). This marks Marshall Retail Group’s first retail operation inside SMF and lays the groundwork for an expanding airport partnership.

The purse and travel handbag brand features a variety of functional and attractive tote bags, wristlets, and other travel accessories – a necessity for every traveler. The kiosk will highlight select items from the brand’s travel collection including its best-selling Take Two Bryant Crossbody bag and Stadium Clear Crossbody.

“MRG believes baggallini® is the ideal travel solution for the growing population of diverse travelers,” said Michael C Wilkins, CEO of Marshall Retail Group. “Passengers are always looking for convenient items to ease their traveling experience, and the brand offers attractive products that fit every travel need.”

The first 50 customers to visit the kiosk will receive a complimentary RFID-protected phone wristlet with any baggallini® purchase, while supplies last.

The thoughtfully designed ‘baggs’ brand was formed in 1995 by Dixie Powers and Ann Simmons, two flight attendants in search of finding convenient and portable travel accessories. Their vision was to create “something stylish with plenty of pockets to help them move from place to place”.

baggallini® is open daily from 4:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. For more information on baggallini® products, visit
