DOHA, Qatar: Qatar Duty Free (QDF) is proud to announce the opening of four new exclusive retail outlets at Hamad International Airport (HIA). Bazaar, Blush, PSG and Bein Sports are the latest additions to Qatar Duty Free’s premium portfolio of brands located within the airport’s 25,000m² duty free shopping area, which incorporates more than 70 retail outlets.
“We are delighted to announce the opening of these four important stores that will add a dynamic new flavour to the vibrant retail mix at Qatar Duty Free in Hamad International Airport,” said Senior Vice President Qatar Duty Free, Keith Hunter. “Both Bazaar and Blush are home-grown brands that we are very proud to have conceptualised and developed especially for this market, and we believe they will be a major attraction for passengers looking for unique gifts and products at affordable prices.”
The concept of Bazaar is based on the style of a traditional souk where guests can buy last-minute Middle Eastern and Qatari souvenirs and gifts before they leave Doha. The wide range of gift items includes colourful pashminas, jewellery, soft toys and Qatari-themed souvenirs such as mugs, pens and keyrings.
Blush is Qatar Duty Free’s very own beauty emporium, and rivals any high street multi-brand beauty store for the breadth and diversity of its products, all available at duty free prices. The large selection of popular brands at Blush includes: L’Oréal, Bourjois, Toni & Guy, Rimmel, OPI and Lanocreme.
Paris Saint Germain fans passing through HIA are also now in for a treat, as the new PSG store stocks a wide range of club branded merchandise and products.
In addition, Qatar’s own Bein Sports TV channel now has a dedicated boutique at HIA stocking branded sports apparel, accessories and gifts from the Qatari home-grown sports network.
