MRG’s new DC Originals store features a selection of local vendors and brands.

Marshall Retail Group (MRG) has unveiled two new retail concepts – DC Originals and WHSmith – in Concourse E at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA).

DC Originals is described as ‘a unique marketplace store that offers travellers a wide variety of products from popular local vendors and well-known brands, such as Naked Décor and The Neighborgoods’.

The product portfolio also includes Lil Fishy children’s apparel and accessories.

In addition to books, magazines, snacks and refreshments, MRG’s new WHSmith news stand carries travel essentials, apparel, gifts and souvenirs.

Showcasing a sense of place

Toby Keir, CEO of MRG and InMotion, commented: “We are grateful to our partners at MarketPlace Development and The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority for the opportunity to bring DC Originals and WHSmith to the airport, which join our existing collection of unique, retail concepts at the [location].

The new WH Smith and DC Originals stores follow hot on the heels of four other recent MRG openings at DCA.

“Our team’s creativity and versatility allow us to capture the spirit of the DC region in a store like DC Originals, and we look forward to our continued partnership with the team at DCA.”

The new DC Originals and WHSmith stores follow in the footsteps of four other recent openings at DCA, which include two The Café at DCA outlets, Capitol File News and InMotion stores.

Further openings are in the pipeline, following MRG’s recent award to develop five additional concepts at the airport.
