SFO Awards Retail Space to MRG

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (September 22, 2016) – Marshall Retail Group (MRG), the largest, independent specialty retailer in the casino and airport marketplace, received an award for retail space at San Francisco International (SFO). MRG is excited to announce plans to open its newest store concept, District Market.

District Market is a shopping emporium, organized into five “districts” that will offer a tailored assortment focused on fashion, beauty, gifts, news, healthy snacks and organic tea and coffee with a strong emphasis on promoting local vendors. MRG will introduce a well-defined, free-flowing market in an open-concept industrial setting. The “marketplace” feel allows for the integration of multiple product offerings and categories within one harmonious, easy-to-shop atmosphere.

Celebrating San Francisco’s distinct neighborhoods, iconic landmarks and local entrepreneurial spirit, District Market will offer an urban shopping experience, featuring a wide range of local, regional and national retail brands and products, alongside flavor and flair from over 20 talented local artisans and businesses. These local artisans, supported by SFMade, were chosen to help the District Market represent The City’s eclectic roots, passion and support of quality products and sustainability practices.

District Market will develop a strong local connection with passengers, encourage customer interaction and engaging experiences, and allow for more purchasing opportunities, thus driving the revenue and return that The City of San Francisco and our stakeholders deserve.

San Francisco is the 7th busiest airport in the U.S. and 21st busiest in the world by passenger count. SFO has been recognized with multiple awards including “Best Overall Concessions Program Award” by Airport Revenue News (2015), “Best Airport in the Americas” by Frequent Business Traveler (2015) and Third Place “Best Airport Worldwide (40 million to 50 million passengers)” by SkyTrax (2014).
