THE WHAT? Abu Dhabi Duty Free has launched an online store allowing UAE residents to opt for home delivery, according to a report published by The National.
THE DETAILS UAE residents will be able to shop via the Abu Dhabi Duty Free website, pay and have the goods delivered to their doorstep.
“We are delighted to launch Abu Dhabi Duty Free home delivery service, enabling residents of the UAE to take advantage of a growing selection of our most popular items we have to offer at Abu Dhabi Duty Free without having to leave their homes,” Shareef Al Hashmi, CEO, told The National. “This new program forms a part of our commitment to our customers to ensure they can enjoy a great range of products while staying safe. We have made the online ordering process incredibly easy and will continue to find ways to make our products and services as attractive and rewarding as possible.”
THE WHY? With COVID-19 decimating the travel industry and travel retail strongly reliant on airport traffic, duty free operators are having to think creatively to attract shoppers.
