Prince store at MSP gives travelers a glimpse at superstar’s Minnesota life
By John Ewoldt Star Tribune
Terminal shop organized around parts of Minnesota musician’s life to lure fans.
In the three years since the superstar musician’s death, Paisley Park has been turned into a tourist site, his recording vault has been mined for new releases and tribute events have multiplied around the Twin Cities.
Last month, an entrepreneur working with the licensor of Prince’s estate opened a shop in Terminal 1 at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. And on Monday, more than 50 passengers gathered at its grand opening despite long delays in security lines.
DJ Dudley D, Prince’s resident DJ, spun tunes from the artist’s prodigious catalog as travelers checked out albums, commemorative jackets, books and T-shirts.
