Pola chooses Changi for first airport duty-free counter outside Japan
Pola will open its first airport duty-free store outside Japan at The Shilla Duty Free Changi Airport Store in a move to strengthen its brand presence in the global market.
Pola is accelerating efforts to open new stores, primarily in Asean countries, so as to expand its travel-retail business outside Japan.
Pola counters are centred around its top-line “B.A” brand, and are decorated primarily in a modern black design. The counter design at The Shilla Duty Free Changi Airport Store follows the design at department stores, extending the brand’s unified look and theme while aiming to match the travel retail environment so that customers can quickly identify the product range and best-sellers even during a short stay in the stores.
The sales for Pola’s travel retail business are driven by the B.A brand, such as B.A Lotion, B.A Wash, and B.A Eyezone Cream.
“We are certain that opening our new store at The Shilla Duty Free Changi Airport Store, which is the biggest hub airport in Asia, will be a great step toward increasing Pola’s brand presence,” said Pola’s global business division director Tamotsu Sato. “The new store will be an important step for Pola to strengthen our brand presence in the global market and further expand our business.”
The counter will be open at The Shilla Duty Free Changi Airport Store at Terminal 2.
