    Why is the U.S. so bad at airport retailing?

    No I don't think it does -- but it does have snacks, drinks, Band-Aids, Tylenol, etc ... all at a third of the price of the newsstands.

    Why is the U.S. so bad at airport retailing?

    Rite Aid at Pittsburgh Airport (with the same pricing as outside the airport) is arguably the single most useful and valuable airport shop I've encountered in the US. Stop and think about that for a second: When's the last time anyone was happy to shop at Rite Aid?! These discussions tend not to consider the consumer and the consumer's needs. We need fewer Mont Blanc shops and more PIT RADs.
