Some of the concepts are Cincinnati specific, with names such as Over the Rhine Market, Seven Hills Essentials and Gaslight Gifts, referencing Cincinnati neighborhoods and history of the city.

“Our proprietary concepts speak to the history, culture and exciting future for the city of Cincinnati and the region, and we’re offering several popular brands for travelers to enjoy,” said Gregg Paradies, president and CEO of Paradies Lagardère, the company that was awarded the retail packages.

Other stores have national recognition like TripAdvisors, TODAY and Brooks Brothers.
