PHILADELPHIA — Dec. 1, 2016 — This holiday season, MarketPlace Philadelphia is spreading cheer by offering seasonal events and promotions in Philadelphia International Airport (PHL).

With gift items ranging from tech and fashion, to beauty and luggage, the retailers of PHL have something to fulfill every holiday wish list. PHL travelers and shoppers will find gifts to suit each person on their shopping list.

PHL shoppers will also have the opportunity to receive a free gift with qualifying purchases. Travelers will get their choice of a free Victoria’s Secret fragrance with a purchase of $150 or more at any combination of MarketPlace PHL retailers through Dec. 24, or while supplies last. Guests must provide same-day receipts at the new Victoria’s Secret Beauty & Accessories location in the B/C Connector to redeem their free gift.

Beginning Dec. 1, “Secret Santas” will be on the move in the terminals handing out free gifts, donated by Philadelphia Marketplace merchants, to military personnel in uniform traveling through PHL as a “thank you” for their service. Free gift-wrapping stations will be offered from Dec. 1—23 from 8 a.m.—9 p.m. daily to make shoppers’ purchases holiday-ready. Gift-wrapping stations will be open on Dec. 24 from 8 a.m.—6 p.m. Shoppers must present a PHL retailer receipt to get their gifts wrapped. Additionally, carolers will make their way through PHL periodically throughout the month to sing some holiday classics.

“PHL shoppers and travelers can expect holiday cheer as they travel through each terminal,” said Mel Hannah, vice president and general manager of MarketPlace PHL, LLC. “We wish our guests safe and speedy travels during this busy season.”

MarketPlace PHL encourages shoppers to make donations to Toys for Tots, which will be accepted at Explore Philadelphia (Concourse A East), Heritage Books (B/C Connector) and Pennsylvania Market (Concourse E).
