323 Days ago

MERRIMACK, NH --(Marketwired - January 20, 2016) - Travelers dashing through the Salt Lake City International airport in hopes of finding travel-friendly clothing and the top brands in gear have a new oasis. Specialty retailer Brookstone opened its first Carry On™ concept store on January 8 in the SLC Delta Terminal. Carry On by Brookstone serves savvy travelers the "best brands in travel gear" including clothing by Craghoppers®, Victorinox®, and Scottevest®, as well luggage by Brics® and Briggs & Riley®, wallets by Belroy®, and packs by Ogio®.

Carry On was introduced to the airport retail marketplace because Brookstone recognizes that travelers want to make their often-taxing journeys easier.

"Whether you're traveling for business, pleasure or adventure, Carry On by Brookstone has smart, innovative items to make your trip more successful," said Brookstone CEO Tom Via. "The clothing you find will be packable and travel-friendly. It will also be on-trend and weather-smart. For instance, one of our featured apparel lines, ExOfficio®, can literally be folded into a tiny ball and remain wrinkle free -- stylish and low maintenance -- now that makes travel easier.

"Our luggage, packs and wallets are simply beautiful, and aren't readily available at most airport retailers. Our goal is to make Carry On an easy and exciting stop with an element of surprise for every traveler's journey."

Brookstone is thrilled to have Salt Lake City as the site of our first-ever Carry On store. The new Carry On by Brookstone store is situated in the Delta Terminal just after the security checkpoint.
