By Administrator |

Gerzon Schiphol has been named as the winner of the 2005 Growth Awards, as presented by Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AAS). The prize was awarded to Gerzon after it achieved a record 20% sales turnover increase

in all of its fashion shops at the airport.
Other nominees for this prize were Food & Beverage and the consumer electronics retailer Take Off Multitronics. In a statement from AAS, the airport said that Gerzon Schiphol had outperformed all other retailers by a wide margin.
‘With an increase in passenger traffic of 3,8% Gerzon achieved an increase in turnover of 20%. The opening of the Business Fashion Shop in Terminal 1 is a significant factor in this increase.
Furthermore, Gerzon is always in search of new possibilities and improvements of their present shops in order to optimally cater to their customers. The addition of new brands and adaptations to the interiors of the shops and of collections have certainly been fruitful.’
Commenting, Philip Gerzon said: ‘We are very proud to be the winner of this award, especially since market conditions were less favourable in previous years. Together with our stakeholders, i.e. personnel, suppliers, airport authorities, we have worked continuously to win the favour of our customers. And at the end of the day, the customers are our judge and jury.
‘The enthusiasm, drive and professionalism of our employees is also an important aspect in making the 20% increase ingross revenue possible.’
