Dubai Duty Free Shopping
A pleasurable experience
Dubai Duty Free Shopping is something that all travellers should not miss. This is because it is one of the most popular and wide spread airport retail ventures. Begun in 1983 at the Dubai International Airport, it is a tax free retail shopping facility that caters to the needs and tastes of a diverse range of people. Tobacco and Alcohol is a fast moving commodity and the quality is of the very best.
The outlets also stock a wide range of perfumes, watchers, jewellery, electric goods, leather goods, toys, books, crystal wear, ladies and gents fashion wear, sportswear, food and gift items. With such a wide range of items on offer (over 35 000 items), all of which are of top quality, it is no surprise that Dubai Duty Free has more than a 590 million USD turnover annually.
It is also famous for the attractive and lucrative promotions and discounts offered quite frequently. Whereas Dubai International Airport houses the headquarters, there are over 70 outlets at various international airports worldwide. Business Traveller Magazine voted Dubai Duty Free as the ‘Best Duty Free Shopping’ location in 2009. Apart from this, the venture has earned many accolades and awards over the years.
Dubai Duty Free, as a pioneer promoter of Dubai, also extends its sponsorship and assistance to various sports events such as Racing – the ‘Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby’, the ‘Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup’ at Ascot – as well as the ‘Barclays Dubai Tennis Tournament’. It is also an ardent supporter of golf. The interest and support given to these various events have further cemented Dubai Duty Free as a much loved, and popular shopping choice.
As the headquarters and the first of the Dubai Duty Free outlets, the retail venture at the Dubai International Airport is a treat and haven for shoppers. Travellers to Dubai, seeking a 5 star hotel Dubai will be highly satisfied with Millennium Airport Hotel Dubai. This Dubai International airport hotel is situated very close to the airport and is a few minutes away from the city centre.
