We Love Where We’re Going

For 45+ years, Love From USA has brought unique, locally-inspired retail concepts to high-profile venues across the United States. With 20+ years of airport retail experience, ACDBE-Certified Founder and CEO, Patricia Chinander, understands how to conceptualize, develop, and execute a winning concept.  

Recently recognized as an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2024 Heartland Finalist, Patricia Chinander is a force to be reckoned with. This incredible honor demonstrates her visionary leadership in growing the company, adapting to the ever-changing airport climate, and creating repeatable business concepts market-to-market. Chinander's leadership qualities and business outlook have also earned her the Most Admired CEO for 2024 from Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal. At Love From USA, we love the direction the company is headed in and are inspired by Chinander’s business acumen and heart for serving the local communities where she operates.  

Operationally, Love From USA provides quality merchandise and positive shopping experiences in each of its 19+ retail concepts, earning the company numerous accolades in 2024. Those include Best Place to Buy a Gift and the Best ACDBE Operator Finalist. Love From USA is committed to building high-quality, well-executed retail store concepts in high-profile venues across the United States.  

Concept designs for Love From USA stores are credited to Love From USA’s esteemed Business Development team who expertly develop designs reflective of the local culture and lifestyle. In early 2024, Love From USA announced The Bay Collection, its inaugural store in San Francisco International Airport, set to open later the same year. This museum-like retail concept invites customers to shop artfully, historically, creatively, and culturally. The Bay Collection’s eye-catching design strategically places displays that will immerse visitors in a visual journey through the museums of San Francisco. The Bay Collection will also highlight the diverse heritage, history, architecture, culture, innovation, and modern design that defines this iconic, world-class city!    

Patricia Chinander’s understanding of the importance of trends and improving her portfolio of brands goes beyond opening new stores. In March 2024, she successfully rebranded one of Love From USA’s Mall of America stores formerly known as The Neighborhood. The UBetcha! concept provides locally made and inspired apparel, drinkware, and gifts featuring Minnesota slang like Ope, You Betcha, and Uff Da! UBetcha! also proudly supports local artists.   

Love From USA is consistently evolving its strategic approach, improving its current brand portfolio, and expanding its family of brands across the continental United States. Be the first to see the latest awards, locations, and updates by following our LinkedIn page.
