Lotte Duty Free celebrates Tokya Ginza store reopening July 1
Lotte Duty Free is celebrating the reopening of the Tokyo Ginza store on July 1. The store closed for two years and three months due to COVID. The news comes on the heels of the Gimpo-Haneda flight route resuming on June 29. The Lotte Duty Free Gimpo Airport branch also reopened.
The Tokya Ginza store reopening includes special events, discounts, promotions and premium whiskey giveaways for customers.
A large-scale discount event will be held for two months (July 1 to August 31) with a total of 70 brands and 2,000 products available up to a 70% discount, including SK2, Shiseido, Cosme Decorte, Suntory and Cheongkwanjang, famous for whiskey.
Events will also include Japanese whiskey as a special gift. From July 1 to 31, a lottery will be held for customers who purchase more than 20,000 yen at the Tokyo Ginza store. Prizes are: one bottle each of Suntory Hibiki 21 Years Old, Yamazaki 18 Years Old, and Hakushu 18 Years Old, 5 bottles of Hibiki Harmony Masters and 20 bottles of Kabuto are offered as prizes. In particular, Hibiki 21 years old and Yamazaki 18 years old are so popular that they are being traded for millions of won in Korea, reads the June 29 press release.
A gift card event for passengers flying the Gimpo-Haneda flight will also take place through July, on a first-come-first-served basis. Given to five customers who visit the Lotte Duty Free Tokyo Ginza store, the cards containing KRW 20,000 (US$15.50) can be used the same day.
Lotte Duty Free recently opened a new story in Sydney, Australia in May and aims to open another Da Nang, Vietnam in the second half of this year. And, the retailer says it is spurring preparation for the grand opening of Singapore Changi Airport, the largest liquor and tobacco store in Asia.
