With its bears, its Mounties and its maple sugar huts, Moose Creek Village is a classic "destination store." A specialist shop that has been carefully fashioned to reflect the colour and flavour of the local culture—in this case Western Canada.

It's an approach that's proving immensely popular with visitors and airports alike. After all, in today's increasingly globalised and standardised world, a dash of local colour can be a trump card in creating a uniquely memorable airport transit environment.

The Moosecreek Village shop design was recognized with an award from the International Store Interior Design Competition.
