LS travel retail North America and ZoomSystems are pleased to announce the opening of the first iStore Express automated retail shop in a Canadian Airport.

Opened in Calgary International Airport (YYC) - Terminal D - on January 27th, this automated retail shop offers consumers a wide range of personal mobile electronic devices and accessories - including best-seller tablets, headphones, speakers and portable games – from leading brands Apple, Sony, Monster, Blackberry, and many more.

More units are currently being deployed in various Canadian airports, including Vancouver, Edmonton, Montreal and Ottawa. Additional locations are being discussed for deployment later in 2012.

“It brings us great pleasure to partner with both ZoomSystems and Boutique iStore to bring to Canadian travelers and consumers such a compelling retail offering. We look forward to continued placement and growth through this strong partnership” said Jonathan Alpert, Vice President Merchandising for LS travel retail North America.

"We are excited to license our brand for this innovative retail channel and bring our products to customers in a way that is fun, fast and secure.  We look forward to eventually bringing iStore Express machines to other retail venues beyond airports in future" said Mike Battat, President of Boutique iStore.

"This is a great partnership. The combined branding, merchandising, technology and distribution expertise will allow the iStore Express Automated Retail shop to deliver an immediate and rewarding experience to the customer" said Jack Lawrence, President and CEO of ZoomSystems.
