We’ve been sitting on this information for awhile because the business interests of the D Magazine Empire were involved, but since Unfair Park mentioned it over the weekend: Yes, it looks like there will be a D Magazine Newsstand in the new terminal of Love Field.
Our humble store, on which we partnered with HMS Host to beat out other companies – like Hudson News and Paradies – Â that sought that deal, should be completed sometime in the middle of 2013. Texas Monthly and CNN are also going to have branded stores at the airport.
We don’t make any revenue directly from this store. So if you’re fearful of funding the creation of our 10 Most Beautiful Women in Dallas list every time you buy a stick of gum there, don’t worry. Â Obviously the big benefit to us is the brand exposure, and it saves a tiny bit (like $30 a month) on what it would cost normally to place our magazines in a store like this one. Plus we’ll get some free advertising for our own purposes on the LCD screens in the store.
Yes, we’re all very much hoping we can convince Wick to take the first shift at the cash register.
