SALT LAKE CITY -- Officials at Salt Lake City International Airport say the first massive makeover of concessions in five decades will boost sales $34 million per year.
The Deseret News reports the 18-month renovation at the nation's 25th busiest airport will start Aug. 1 and cost $35 million.
The airport's director of administration and commercial operations estimates annual sales will be $108 million once all stores are rebuilt and new ones added. John Buckner says concessions currently bring in $74 million a year.
Money to pay for the makeover has been set aside over the years.
Local and national vendors from Cafi Rio to Brighton Collectibles are among those being added.
New concessions will cover 75,000 square feet. There will be 67 shops -- one fewer than before -- but 56 different options.
