New York - Retail developer MarketPlace Development announced that the food and stores at LaGuardia Airport's Terminal B will receive a major overhaul in 2014.

New specialty stores will include America!, Desigual, Eddie Bauer, LaCoste, L'Occitane, Lick, Ruby Blue and Tumi. InMotion Entertainment and Duty Free Americas are also scheduled to remodel and will debut fresh looks. New and improved food options include Bowery Bay Cafe, Einstein Bros. Bagels, Piccolo Mercato, Six Block Bakery, Sorrentine, and Villa Italian Kitchen. Au Bon Pain will perform a full remodel on all of their units and add a handmade sandwich bar to their 24-hour operation in food court near Gates D.
Construction has begun and will continue to take place throughout the summer and fall period. All construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.
