A BRAND-NEW store with exclusive brands is set to open at Aberdeen International Airport this summer.
Discover Aberdeen is a new partnership with Lagardere Travel Retail and is the first store the company has opened at the north-east’s major transport hub.
The French-based corporation already operates thousands of stores worldwide in 39 countries.
Discover Aberdeen will have a passion for all things Scottish from local produce to Harris Tweed, Whisky and souvenirs.
Aberdeen International Airport and Lagardere Travel Retail will have full range exclusivity for a number of brands at the new store including Stewarts of Scotland, Deans of Huntly shortbread, Steven Brown Art and Glen Appin.
More than 10 jobs will be created at Discover Aberdeen and includes a mixture of full-time and part-time roles when the store opens in late June.
Marion Engelhard, Managing Director of Lagardere Travel Retail UK & Ireland, said: “We are thrilled to open our Discover Aberdeen store in Aberdeen International Airport and to welcome passengers with a new and vibrant concept.
“Discover Aberdeen is about bringing the best of local and Scottish products to Aberdeen Airport and will enjoy the exclusive presence of numerous brands.
“This sets yet another milestone to our successful partnership with AGS Airports over the years.”
Jemma Cumming, Commercial Manager at Aberdeen International Airport, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Lagardere Travel Retail to our airport. Work has been ongoing since 2019 to bring this concept into our extended airside retail footprint.
“Discover Aberdeen will be a great addition to our terminal and enhances the hard work we have done to get retail outlets reopened at the airport.
“This will create 11 local jobs which is great in the current situation and we are looking forward to celebrating all things Scottish at the new store.”
