Tender Loving Empire’s empire, as it were, has become larger, if not a bit more tender loving.
The Portland retailer-record label opened its fourth spot in Portland International Airport’s D Concourse. The locale will carry the array of handmade gifts, apparel and music that’s fueled TLE during its 10 years of doing business.
The airport outlet will also offer food and beverages, including what TLE co-founder Brianne Mees said is a signature line of products.
“We’re overjoyed to be putting hundreds of local artists, musicians and makers in front of the 18 million people that will go through PDX in 2017,” she said.
Fieldwork Design applied its creative touch to the airport space. The company also designed TLE’s Hawthorne and Northwest 23rd locations.
