MILWAUKEE — Nothing is worse than heading somewhere warm and having to lug around a winter coat. Now you don't have to do that.

A coat check service is now open at the Summerfest Marketplace store, which is located pre-security in the Airport's concession mall.

The airport claims to be the only major U.S airport to allow travelers to check their coats.

"It's a great fit during our harsh winters," Airport Director Brian Dranzik said. "Heavy winter coats can take up a lot of space in luggage. This new option allows travelers to wear their coats to the airport, leave them with a friendly attendant in the Summerfest Marketplace, and then claim them after landing back here at MKE."

The cost is two dollars per day, with a maximum charge of ten dollars.
