Just in time for the holiday shopping season comes word that yet another local favorite has opened up a shop at Oregon’s Portland International Airport.
The airport already has a pre-security shopping street populated with branches of Powell’s Books, Made in Oregon, the Oregon Pendleton Store, Nike, and the Real Mother Goose.
Now Portland-based Columbia Sportswear Company has opened a shop at the airport. The company is well-known for apparel, footwear and outdoor gear and is a nice fit the other PDX businesses that feature Pacific Northwest products, foods and beverages.
If you’re heading that way, keep in mind that the airport has free wireless Internet access, that Oregon has no sales tax (on anything), and that during the airport’s annual Holiday Take Flight celebration, you can enter to win a pair of tickets on JetBlue. Not heading that way? You can also enter the PDX contest on-line.
See you at the mall…. I mean, the airport…
