ATLANTA – Paradies Lagardère, the North American travel retail and restaurateur leader, and the Tampa International Airport today hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the opening of a CNBC-branded store in Airside A. This is the 115th CNBC-branded store opened in partnership with Paradies Lagardère, and marks the first Paradies Lagardère-operated store at the airport.
CNBC is the world leader in business news, and provides real-time financial market coverage and business information to more than 340 million homes worldwide. CNBC-branded stores offer various products, including snacks and beverages, as well as basic travel essentials. Each location features CNBC programming throughout the day on large television screens.
