Fashion Spa House, the first participants in the BWI Launch Pad program, Monday marked the opening of a new store at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.
Store owners Cynthia and Ketorus Gooding of Baltimore signed a full lease for a 300 square-foot retail unit in the A/B Concourse through May 2024.
The retailer has offered an array of fashions, accessories and vegan skin care for health-minded travelers at BWI since they opened their first retail unit at the airport as part of the inaugural BWI Launch Pad program in 2017.
Since then, BWI Launch Pad has welcomed a variety of small and minority area businesses to the airport. The participants have access to operating a retail merchandising unit for a limited time with minimal investment and ongoing business development training and resources.
