CARDIFF Airport has launched a new Buy Now, Collect on Return service to make duty free shopping even easier for travellers, as well as welcoming two new brands to its tax and duty free shop.
Creators of handcrafted fine Welsh Gold jewellery, Clogau Gold, and popular active lifestyle clothing and accessories retailer, Fat Face, have joined the brands on offer at Cardiff Airport’s Nuance Tax and Duty Free shop.
Nuance at Cardiff Airport has also launched a new Buy Now, Collect on Return service which will allow customers to browse the tax free selection, purchase the items in store then pick them up on their return journey through the airport. The service is available to customers travelling to destinations within the EU, including the UK.
Jon Horne, chief executive of Cardiff Airport, said: “We’re very pleased to welcome these two leading British brands to the already extensive collection of big names on offer at Nuance. As the national airport of Wales we’re proud to showcase the range of bespoke and high end products available from Welsh businesses and craft specialists, so Clogau Gold is a particularly good fit.”
Martyn Scarf, Nuance’s area manager UK comments: “We are delighted to see the latest developments to come to life. The new Collect on Return service is a great opportunity to enhance our services to customers flying back to Cardiff and the launch of Clogau Gold and Fat Face demonstrates our continuous aim to bring exciting brands to our customers. Together with Cardiff Airport we have been working closely in order to drive and develop the retail offer to meet the needs of the customers at the airport.”
Clogau Gold has already been featured at Cardiff Airport as part of a product showcase wall which presents creations from business across Wales, from Halen Mon Sea Salt and Penderyn Whisky to Alison Tod hats. The product showcase is one of a collection of multimedia installations designed to communicate everything Wales has to offer, in terms of industry, culture, geography, history and everything in between.
Mr Horne continued: “In addition to offering unique and luxury products, it’s important that we continue to develop our customer service as we aim to get ahead of our competitors. Buy Now, Collect on Return delivers real convenience to business and leisure travellers alike, simplifying their journey while ensuring they are still able to benefit from the excellent prices we can offer at Nuance.”
