Duty Free Philippines Corporation (DFPC) will be opening a luxury story and a new shopping outlet next month– the Duty Free Philippines Luxe Store and the NAIA Terminal 3 Landside Store.

In a press release, DFPC said the two new retail stores will be its biggest shopping destinations, targeted to tourists and balikbayans.

“Our initiative is driven by the Department of Tourism’s commitment to promote the Philippines as a premiere tourist destination,” DFPC Chief Operating Officer Vico A. Angala was quoted as saying.

The Luxe Store is a 4,200-square meter multi-level building located at the tourist center of the SM Mall of Asia complex in Pasay. DFPC said it is the “first ultra-luxurious travel retail destination,” which will offer a wide range of high-end imported products from brands such as Bally, Ferragamo, Coach and Michael Kors.

On the other hand, the Landside Store, located at the arrival lobby of NAIA Terminal 3, will feature the more familiar Duty Free goods–imported chocolates, perfumes, liquor and grocery items that are priced lower than in local markets. — Denise A. Valdez
