Since the mandatory self-quarantine was lifted on 21 March, the country’s recovery has been rapid, said Lotte. “In particular, imported cosmetics accounted for more than 30% of sales, and were found to be the most preferred product group by domestic customers,” added a statement.

 

A Lotte Duty Free spokesperson said: “We plan to continue strengthening face-to-face services by holding events for top-tier customers in collaboration with Estée Lauder.”
