Innovative retail concepts arrive at Pittsburgh International Airport

Two new local operators, Commonwealth Press and Cha-Ching Coin Jewelry, are now open at the AirMall at Pittsburgh International Airport in Pennsylvania. Also making its debut at the airport is DefensePac, an innovative system offering travelers flier-friendly disposable foot covers and hand sanitizers to-go.

Bob Kerlik, vice president of media relations, Pittsburgh International said, “We are excited to announce the all-in-one DefensePac solution, which brings comfort and convenience to the traveling public, especially when passing through security checkpoints.”

Commonwealth Press specializes in Pittsburgh-themed merchandise and offers a quirky lineup that celebrates Pittsburgh’s unique regional flair and “Yinzer” culture.

Pop-up store Cha-Ching Coin Jewelry offers jewelry and accessories that have been meticulously handcrafted from coins and tokens collected from around the globe.

DefensePac kits consist of four Purell hand sanitizer packets and a pair of medically approved latex-free anti-skid disposable foot covers, packaged in a reusable plastic bag. The clear bags can also be used to store personal items when placed in security bins.

Donna John, founder of DefensePac, said, “DefensePac is an optimal healthy solution when traveling. The handy foot covers – the alternative to bare feet - and TSA-approved baggies help travelers move efficiently through security lines.”

DefensePac will also be introduced at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI Marshall) in Maryland this summer.
