The Prince Store at MSP Airport – Terminal 1 Concourse F
A new Prince store opened recently in the Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport (MSP). It is the first of its kind offering an expanded line of merchandise beyond the gift shop at Paisley Park. Located in the main mall area at Terminal 1 near the south checkpoint, the store sells Paisley Park tour tickets and official Prince merchandise including t-shirts, concert paraphernalia, albums, books, posters, CDs, movies, keychains, magnets, stickers and more.

Apparently, the idea for a Prince themed store has been in the works for a few years and Airport Retail Group found an available location for this concept. Bravado, that serves as the exclusive worldwide branding and licensing partner for the Prince estate, is also developing travel accessories and other collections specifically for the airport location. This Universal Music merchandise and brand management company signed a merchandising agreement with Prince’s estate in early 2017 with intentions of curating global programs that honor Prince’s career bringing new ways to connect him to his fans.
A grand opening event for the Prince store is being planned for July and the lease at this location in the airport is for several years.
