New airport store celebrates U.S. Civil Rights Trail

Civil Rights Trail Market commemorates history

A new store at the Birmingham Shuttlesworth International Airport features items commemorating the people and places of the civil rights movement.

The Civil Rights Trail Market is one of several stores at the airport that have been renovated and rebranded with names such as Sweet Home Alabama and Magic City Market.

“It’s a new day at BHM,” said Darlene Wilson, chair of the Birmingham Airport Authority. “Our team is working hard every day to make this terminal a reflection of the community we love and to give customers more of what they want when they travel.”

Like other retail stores at the airport, the Civil Rights Trail Market is operated by Hudson, which operates stores in more than 1,000 airports throughout North America.

“We are thrilled to expand our long-term relationship with the Birmingham Airport Authority with the opening of The Civil Rights Trail Market and other new locally curated stores that truly celebrate the culture of this legendary city, while driving excellence in the traveler experience,” said Brian Quinn, executive vice president and deputy CEO of Hudson.
