Designer fashion brands open new stores at Glasgow Airport
03 August 2012
Glasgow Airport’s multi-million pound investment in new facilities and services continues with the arrival of two new designer retail stores.
World-famous fashion brands Lacoste and Tommy Hilfiger have landed in Glasgow and opened their first Scottish airport stores in the main departures lounge.
Passengers will benefit from savings on high street retail prices and the area has recently been refurbished to create a better experience with two new bars, new seating and views of the airfield and runway.
Glasgow Airport has worked closely with Airest Collezioni, which has already brought names such as Dorothy Perkins to the airport, on the new stores.
Francois Bourienne, Glasgow Airport’s Commercial Director, said: “The arrival of two prestigious brands is further evidence of the airport’s ongoing multi-million pound investment programme, and the hard work our team has been doing to improve the retail experience for our passengers.
“Alongside our efforts to develop and strengthen our route network, we continue to invest in upgrading our facilities and are delighted that Lacoste and Tommy Hilfiger are on board.”
The French clothing company with its famous crocodile logo and the iconic American brand with its distinctive flag will stock a range of designer clothing for departing passengers.
Lacoste will offer a range of male, female and childrens’ threads from the latest season such as t-shirts, polo shirts, crew neck shirts and blouses. Tommy Hilfiger will stock a range of ladies’ and gents’ designer clothing such as shirts, t-shirts, polos, jeans, dresses and swimwear.
In January 2012 Glasgow Airport announced details of an investment programme which will see £9 million spent on capital projects during this year.
A significant proportion of investment will be targeted on the airfield to ensure a smooth, efficient and safe operation and further improvements will be made to the fabric of the terminal building, which underwent an extensive multi-million pound refurbishment in 2011.
