Coach (New York) unveiled a new concept dubbed Coach Airways – located within a transformed Boeing 747-230B aircraft from 1981. The project, which began with acquiring the Boeing in April 2021, is located at the Freeport A’Famosa Outlet in Malacca, Malaysia, according to a company press release.

Its interior harkens to the “golden age of air travel,” and features a welcoming area, café and gallery. The plane’s “retail cabins” include a selection of ready-to-wear, travel accessories and bags. Customers will even be provided with a pass upon entering that resembles an airplane ticket.

“The opening of Coach Airways marks not only the launch of our first retail concept of its kind but also an exciting moment for Coach as we continue to push innovation and create a space where customers can explore and interact,” says Campbell O’Shea, General Manager of Tapestry Southeast Asia & Oceania. “We are looking forward to bringing our customers this experiential retail pop-up at Freeport A’Famosa Outlet, a popular shopping destination in Malacca.”



She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
