A redesigned shopping experience awaits passengers at Hamburg Airport from spring 2019. Several shop spaces on the Passenger Pier in the airport’s security-controlled area are being remodelled. Hamburg-based company Gebr. Heinemann is opening its new shops there during March and April, with a fresh range of products, new brands and a modern design.
“At Hamburg Airport, we never sit still in our commitment to provide passengers with an optimal travel experience and a maximum of comfort. And this, of course, includes a colourful range of shopping options,” says Lutz Deubel, Head of Center Management at Hamburg Airport. “We have been in partnership with Gebr. Heinemann for many years, and the company has a great deal of experience and awareness of customer needs. We are thrilled about the fresh new design that the shops will soon be presenting — along with even more products and offers for customers to discover.”
“My team and I are very excited about the new shops. The Destination Hamburg Store is so well established, you could almost call it a classic. With the trendy new design, it will be even more attractive to the young target market. And with the sunglasses and FAWJ shops, we are finally able to demonstrate our competence in these areas at Hamburg Airport again. We have an extensive product range for every passenger under the Heinemann Duty Free umbrella,” says Thomas Brock, Managing Director Gebr. Heinemann Hamburg Airport.
New brands, Hamburg souvenirs and a modern atmosphere
Construction work on the shop spaces began in January 2019. Heinemann will complete the remodelling and re-open the shops in spring 2019. Gebr. Heinemann’s Destination Hamburg concept store is moving into the Airport Plaza at Hamburg Airport, offering typical Hamburg souvenir articles, e.g. from St. Pauli, HSV and Gin Sul. Gebr. Heinemann previously operated the shop with a similar range adjacent to Gate B53. The relocation places the shop in an even more prominent location, easily accessible for passengers directly after the central security checkpoint in the Airport Plaza.
Gebr. Heinemann is also opening Heinemann Duty Free in the Airport Plaza, with premium sunglasses from numerous designer brands. In the third shop, currently being remodelled adjacent to Gate A18, Heinemann will be launching its innovative “FAWJ” concept: Fashion, Accessories, Watches and Jewellery.
The new shop concepts offer customers the price benefit of Heinemann’s duty-free pricing. Destination Hamburg is scheduled to open mid-March 2019, followed by Heinemann Duty Free Sunglasses and FAWJ at the start of April 2019.
On the move for a colourful shopping experience
Several shops will be changing places in the Southern Passenger Pier between now and April 2019, reopening with modernised designs and optimising the usage of existing retail space.
