Kelowna’s airport has expanded their retail offerings, thanks to a collaboration with Tourism Kelowna and Okanagan Lifestyle Apparel Inc.

The home-grown brand, commonly stylized as OKGN, was created back in 2014. It will now have its items for sale at a storefront in the Kelowna International Airport’s departure lounge.
