Retail @ Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort

As part of the major expansion and renovation at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort, Cuningham Group designed a number of new retail environments for the property. The Gilded Basket on the main casino floor offers a variety of Harrah’s branded merchandise as well as a selection of local Cherokee crafts. Additional retail is located on the second floor overlooking the casino and is punctuated by a glass bead lighting feature reminiscent of dew drops on a spider’s web, in keeping with the resort’s nature-inspired design theme. The upper retail concourse also offers views to the creek that runs alongside the resort.
