Lotte Duty Free is the new liquor and tobacco concessionaire at Changi Airport, taking over the DFS Group, which pulled out after its 35-year tenure ended this year. Renovations on Lotte’s stores at Changi Airport will take place in phases, in line with Singapore's Covid-19 measures, beginning with Terminals 1 and 3. But you don’t have to wait till its physical stores are ready before you shop.
Lotte will first retail online at iShopChangi.com, before its brick-and-mortar shops open. And to kick things off with a bang, Lotte will offer a seven per cent discount on a range of products from June 12 to 30, in addition to tax- and duty-absorbed prices. On top of that, you get a five per cent discount voucher for your next purchase in-store.
It may be a while before we get to shop at Lotte’s 18 physical stores which will span over 8,000 sqm across Changi Airport’s four terminals. But here’s a teaser of what to expect when we eventually do. In the pipeline are a specialised cognac brand boutique, dedicated immersive zones highlighting whiskey, gin and wines, and a high-tech tasting bar. In-store offerings will include over 3,000 tax- and duty-free wines and spirits, exclusive brands and limited edition whiskies and cognacs, and a dedicated section of Asian spirits highlighting Singapore and Korea brands.
