New York, NY, November 27, 2018 – Briggs & Riley, the independently-owned international brand that is the travel authority in the luggage space, and InMotion, the country’s largest airport-based electronics retailer, have announced a new collaboration at George Bush Intercontinental Airport. The newly opened Houston store, located in the International Terminal E, will be the first stand-alone store dedicated entirely to Briggs & Riley luggage, business cases, and travel accessories.
Travelers through Houston, one of the nation’s busiest airports, now have the convenience of shopping for new, premium luggage and business cases while they’re in transit. The 570-square-foot Houston store will carry all of the innovative and stylish Briggs & Riley collections, including the popular Baseline collection, the brand’s most iconic line and a favorite among “road warriors.” Other featured collections include Transcend, Sympatico, @work, Verb and Kinzie Street, as well as a variety of travel accessories. The team at the Houston store was selected from some of the top retail companies in the Houston region to offer customers singular customer service and expertise in helping them select the collection and bag that best fits their needs.
“We are thrilled to introduce our first stand-alone store and second collaboration with InMotion,” said Richard Krulik, Briggs & Riley CEO. “They are the perfect partner for us, as we are both focused on providing our customers with innovative and thoughtfully-designed products.”
“Opening our first Briggs & Riley store in Houston is a milestone in our company’s continuing growth story. The premium luggage brand is a natural expansion and complements our current electronics offering of name brand products. Coupling our award-winning customer service with George Bush Intercontinental Airport’s high-traffic and discerning travelers is a proven formula. We are confident the passengers will welcome the first ever Briggs and Riley location with enthusiasm and repeat business.” Said Jeremy Smith, President and CEO, InMotion Entertainment Group.
The Houston store opens just in time for the busy holiday shopping season and offers frequent business travelers and vacationers traveling over the holidays an ideal last-minute gift. They can also take advantage of current Briggs & Riley’s holiday special of a $50 savings off any purchased item of $350 or more. Further, visitors to the store during its opening month will receive a special gift with purchase.
Briggs & Riley is the only luggage brand to offer a lifetime repair guarantee on all bags. In addition to the new Houston store and the InMotion store at the Detroit Metro Airport, the brand can be found at more than 600 fine specialty retailers, select e-tailers, select high-end department stores and online at www.briggs-riley.com.
