The Philadelphia Tribune’s historical legacy is now on display at Philadelphia International Airport.
Terminal A East is home to The Philadelphia Tribune retail store, which tells the story of the nation’s oldest African-American newspaper through photos and offers a unique shopping experience for travelers.
“This is an exciting time for The Philadelphia Tribune and a new way to engage our audience,” said Tribune President and CEO Robert W. Bogle.
“We look forward to this partnership.”
And the airport is “the ideal location to experience and celebrate the historic brand that embodies Philadelphia,” said Yasmin Sheriff, vice president of business development and strategic alliance at Stellar Partners, Inc.
“We feel very fortunate to work with the Tribune and to become another milestone in the Tribune’s long and distinguished history.”
The store, which is the latest addition to MarketPlace PHL’s Food and Shops program, was developed through a collaboration between the newspaper, Stellar Partners, Inc. and MarketPlace PHL.
“Philadelphia is a city rich in African-American history and the Philly Tribune has been a major advocate of prosperity and growth with African-American communities here in the city of brotherly love since 1884. Its team of skilled writers and editors, combined with expert leadership from long-time President Robert Bogle have helped to advance African-American achievements and experiences by providing information daily to citizens of Philly,” said Mel Hanna, Vice President and General Manager of MarketPlace PHL. “Words cannot express how thrilled we are to welcome The Philadelphia Tribune to the PHL Food and Ships program. It is imperative that we continue the legacy of this historic publication by bringing such a revered brand to all who work and fly through PHL.:
The store is stocked with a curated “best of Philly” assortment of locally made products.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony is slated for Feb. 24.
