•    Ruby Blue (D/E Connector) – offers vast array of jewelry, handbags, gift items and accessories to choose from.
•    Finish Line (B/C Connector) – travelers looking for a new pair of kicks or active wear for a long flight can check out this athletic retailer offering brand name apparel and accessories. Finish Line PHL is the retailer’s second airport location in the U.S.
•    Jack Duggan’s (Concourse A East) – with an expansion into the hold room across from its location in Gate A7, this crowd favorite that features tasty pub fare can welcome even more passengers through its doors.

“We’re excited to welcome new stores to the lineup of merchants to the MarketPlace family,” said Mel Hannah, vice president and general manager of MarketPlace Philadelphia Management. “We are proud of the diverse options we’re able to provide the 30 million passengers that pass through our airport each year.”
