Lotte Duty Free MLB World Tour Seoul Series

Lotte Duty Free opened the MLB inspired New Era pop-up store on 29 February at its Myeongdong main store.

Korean travel retailer Lotte Duty Free has launched a duty free exclusive pop-up at its Myeongdong downtown store, inspired by the Major League Baseball (MLB) World Tour Seoul Series 2024.

The New Era pop-up was unveiled on 29 February at the Star Lounge on the 14th floor of Lotte’s Myeongdong main store, complete with a baseball themed Hit A Home Run spring promotion.

The MLB World Tour Seoul Series is taking place at Gocheok SkyDome in Seoul from 20-21 March 2024 and Lotte’s pop-up will be active until 24 March.

At New Era, visitors can discover the Seoul Series collection featuring caps worn by MLB players, tee-shirts and hoodies.

There’s also a variety of shopping promotions to take advantage of.

Until March 10, Korean customers making purchases at Lotte Duty Free’s brick and mortar stores will receive an exchange rate compensation and a double gift initiative from selected credit card companies.

If the retail exchange rate exceeds KRW1,320 per dollar on the date of purchase, the customer’s LDF Pay (the retailer’s digital payment platform) will be credited up to KRW150,000 won (around US$112).
