COLONIE — Frequent flyers know Oakwells as the newsstand they’ve come to count on in countless cities around the North America; the place where they’ve purchased bottles of water, New Yorker magazines and trail mix for that middle-distance flight. Fewer know that the company caters to travelers once they’ve reached their destinations as well—and when they’ve arrived safely back at home.
At the Oakwells inside the Desmond Hotel here in Albany, Capital Region residents don’t need to rent a room to drop in and pick up a charming gift for a seasonal holiday or the perfect accessory for the outfit they’ll be wearing to the party. Just inside the hotel’s front entrance, shoppers can find hats to wear to the racetrack; scarves for accessorizing in the fall; picture frames to cherish the memories; and greeting cards for just about every occasion. Oakwells carries items such as Noelle handbags, craft cocktail kits and sports merchandise in a convenient location without the hassle of local malls or Wolf Road shopping plazas—and the hotel bar and restaurant are just steps away.
Local shoppers are also invited to visit Oakwells other shop located in the Bassett Medical Center in Cooperstown, N.Y. Anyone interested in benefiting from the company’s 25 years of retail and food and beverage is also welcome to contact the company to take advantage of its retail consulting services.
