Duty free retailer Heinemann has unveiled its new duty-free store in the departures area of Terminal 1 (T1) at Sydney Airport in Australia. The new outlet is the largest duty free offering at the airport.
Heinemann’s new flagship store has a contemporary layout with a clear line of sight for passengers to improve wayfinding. It has seven unique customer experiences including a premium spirits lounge, tasting bar, specific men’s products section, gifts section, cosmetics area, regional wine space and kids playground.
The new store opening represents the first stage of a 12-month project between Heinemann and Sydney Airport with the second stage set for completion in February 2016. This will include the addition of further in-store concepts and design installations, an extensive fashion and accessories range, a selection of gourmet food products and a custom-built dining concept from renowned Australian chef Luke Mangan.
