Beauty and beyond - new retailers land at Auckland Airport

24 November 2014

Auckland Airport is expanding its international duty free shopping experience with the addition of a range of covetable local and international brands.

The newly opened fashion and beauty stores in the airport’s international departure area are:

  • Iconic Kiwi handbag brand SABEN – the first of many retailers that will be showcased using Auckland Airport’s new international pop-up store. SABEN is also available for “click and collect” – where passengers have the option of buying online and collecting their duty free purchase when next travelling internationally.

  • OPI nail bar in response to passenger demand for an airside nail salon.

  • Swarovski fashion accessories spin-off lolaandgrace.

  • Urban brand G-Factory selling Casio G-Shock watches.

Richard Barker, Auckland Airport’s general manager retail and commercial, says the latest fashion and beauty brands to set up at Auckland Airport mark the ongoing extension of the airport’s duty free shopping experience, including the ability to duty free shop from the comfort of their own home.

We are focused on providing our passengers with a shopping experience they won’t get anywhere else in New Zealand, with a growing range of products and services that represent some of the best of New Zealand and the world.

It's exciting for us to have so many top retailers coming on board, from local darling SABEN to international accessories chain lolaandgrace. These new fashion and beauty brands join the likes of Benefit Cosmetics, MAC, Icebreaker, Miu from Prada and jewellery brands Karen Walker, Boh Runga and Nick von K,” says Mr Barker.

Auckland Airport is also committed to improving the range of stores at our domestic terminal. The recently opened 3 Wise Men shirt store there is already proving extremely popular.”

With over 100 retailers now operating at Auckland Airport, there is something for everyone. We will continue to target high quality retailers to open stores at the airport, providing even greater choice for our passengers and travellers,” says Mr Barker.
