ARI is delighted to announce the expansion of our North American operations with the launch of a new store at Edmonton International Airport, Canada.

ARI will be operating Duty Free concessions in partnership with Marshall Retail Group, who will be operating other concessions within the airport, outside of Duty Free.

We are very excited to expand our footprint in this region working with a fantastic partner to bring our ARI heritage of trusted and exceptional experiences to our customers at Edmonton International Airport. This expansion of our North American business into a new city, in the year that we celebrate our 25th anniversary of ARI’s business in this region, is a great testament to the loyalty and dedication of our team here and I would like to thank all of my colleagues for their hard work and commitment.

The new store venture will see ARI operate in the Liquor, Tobacco, Perfume, Cosmetics, Confectionery, Sunglasses, Jewellery, Handbags and Souvenirs Duty Free categories, in two retail spaces of 170 sqm and a further 190 sqm transborder store.

At YEG, we are committed to elevating the travellers’ journey, and we are thrilled to welcome ARI — a company celebrated for its unwavering commitment to excellence and customer service. Welcoming ARI to our airport and enhancing our shopping options helps to ensure we are able to provide an unparalleled experience tailored to our passengers.
