Terminal B (Delta Airlines)
A $325m modernisation programme is underway in this terminal, which will eventually see new ticket counters, better baggage screening, and a whole lot more retail stores. Hooray to that as the line up of stores in this part of the airport could do with a bit of a makeover.
EJE Travel Retail runs the duty-free stores in this terminal too and has no fewer than four shops at Gates B40-47, B50-58, B60-68, and finally near the entrance to Gates B60-68.
Elsewhere, Hudson News has multiple stores throughout the terminal both airside and landside, while the InMotion Entertainment outlet at Gates B60-68 stocks a decent range of MP3 players, digital cameras, camcorders and computer games.

Ever wanted a President Barack Obama bobblehead, a 2011 Sarah Palin calendar or a Ronald Reagan commemorative t-shirt? Thought so, well just in case you change your mind, head to the America store near the entrance to Gates B40-47 for patriotic American clothing, jewellery, books, music and toys (see http://america-store.stores.yahoo.net/index.html
for more details).
Terminal C (Continental Airlines)
Terminal C is Continental’s international gateway and a relatively new building, having opened an extension in 2001. It is now a three-level terminal with two levels for departures and boasts an excellent selection of over 45 shops and 36 restaurants, including fashion and accessories boutiques from the likes of Guess/Hugo Boss, Swatch, Lacoste, Coach and MAC.
Swiss travel-retailer Dufry runs the duty-free concession in this terminal and has three stores at Gates C74, C107 and C120 respectively. Other stores selling beauty products include both the ethically-minded Body Shop and the Provence-inspired L’Occitaine, which are located airside near the C-1 Checkpoint.
Gadget Express (near Gate C132), a family-run store, sells the usual range of consumer electronic accessories, but gets mixed reviews from frequent travellers in terms of price and customer service. BlackBerry users will be pleased to learn that a new BlackBerry store has just opened in the terminal, while a new one-stop electronics shop Bluwire 1 is set to open its doors later in the year.
For a better class of gift or souvenir we recommend the excellent Metropolitan Museum of Art Store near GateC120, which sells an attractive collection of books, wall art, sculptures, jewellery and home furnishings (see https://store.metmuseum.org ). Best-sellers under $30 include a Tiffany Peacock Feather ballpoint pen at $30, an Egyptian Collar t-shirt also at $30; an Aesop’s Fable Pop-up Book at $27.99 and finally a Leonardo Da Vinci: Journal of Inventions Pop-Up Book at $24.95.
