The finance committee of the airport board will hear a request on Tuesday to approve the sale to a new group called Airport Concessions, according to the board meeting agenda released late today. Airport Concessions is also seeking a new 5-year lease with the airport. If all is approved by the committee, the full board would vote on the matter Thursday.
Carolyn Johnson, who owns the two stores in Terminal D along with her business partner Terrence Chavis, has said that the stores wouldn't have to shut down as a result of any deal she could strike with a new owner.
As of July, the stores, near gates 12 and 27, owed $124,286.94 in back rent.
Proceeds from the sale will allow the Johnson and Chavis to pay off the outstanding rent, according to the agenda.
Airport Concessions, which was formed in 1986, has airport concession operations in Denver, Los Angeles, Jacksonville and Houston Intercontinental, according to the agenda.
