Duty Free Paris, the joint venture between A?roports de Paris and The Nuance Group has opened three ‘Attitude’ multi-brand fashion outlets in Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport's Terminal 2A covering a total area of 295sq m.
The three new stores measure 70, 92 and 133sq m and offer many well known brands including Longchamp, Kipling, Samsonite, Thomas Sabo, Swarowski, Hugo Boss, Lacoste, Lancel, Sonia Rykiel, Guess and – for the first time at Paris' airports – Diesel, Wolford and Dor? Dor?.
Each of the stores features an event space dedicated to an ever-changing series of trendy French brands, which will contribute to creating an unforgettable shopping experience.
Nuance says that the offer and the choice of brands attributed to the three shops has been especially tailored to match the needs of the passengers going through this terminal, which is dedicated to international flights mainly serving North and South America, the Middle East, the UK and Asia.
Guy Bodescot, General Manager, Duty Free Paris, explained: ‘Our new joint venture started up in late January by taking over nine existing stores. These three Attitude concepts now introduced are the first shops really designed and built by Duty Free Paris, our newly set-up joint venture. We are proud to showcase our ability to present fashion brands in an exciting shop environment and look forward to growing our portfolio further in the course of 2009 and beyond.’
Speaking on behalf of A?roports de Paris, Pierre Graff, Chairman & CEO of A?roports de Paris, declared: ‘The new sales points designed by Duty Free Paris will allow A?roports de Paris to enhance the fashion and accessories offer. The products and new brands available at terminal 2A respond precisely to the expectations of Paris-Charles de Gaulle's international clients. By the end of the year, we will have developed these new tailored stores for both Paris airports.’
