Hudson Nonstop arrives In Chicago using Amazon’s Just Walk Out Technology

Hudson, a Dufry company and travel experience leader with more than 1,000 stores in airports, commuter hubs, landmarks and tourist destinations across North America, today celebrates the highly anticipated opening of its new Hudson Nonstop store at Chicago Midway International Airport (MDW), combining the signature Hudson shopping experience with Amazon’s Just Walk Out technology.

Hudson Nonstop at MDW calls Concourse B, Gate B19 its final destination. As the largest Hudson Nonstop store to-date, the 1,000-square-foot store spills out directly onto the concourse floor, providing travellers a glimpse into the products and experiences waiting for them inside. By inserting or tapping a credit card, travellers can enter the store, pick up their products, and quickly exit – avoiding checkout lines and making passing through the Windy City store a breeze.

“I’m incredibly proud of our team for delivering not one, but two Hudson Nonstop stores in the past six months. With the opening of Hudson Nonstop at MDW, we’re continuing to expand our digital retail footprint, bringing travellers personalized and contactless shopping environments through innovative technology,” said Brian Quinn, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Hudson. “We want to thank the Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA), Midway Partnership, and the local airport community for embracing this innovative new concept, and look forward to our continued success and partnership ahead.”

Travellers arriving at the store are greeted by a Hudson team member who is eager and ready to assist them, answer any questions, and re-stock shelves as needed. Once a credit card has been inserted or tapped at the entry gates, travellers enter the store to find an unmatched assortment of travel basics, delectable food selections, and sentimental keepsakes right at their fingertips.
