Dufry opens first border duty-free shop in Brazil

Dufry has opened its first Brazil duty-free border shop with a retail space of 850 m2 in Uruguaiana, one of the most important cities in the South of Brazil, at the border to Argentina. The shop offers an assortment of prestige international brands similar to those seen in Dufry’s airport shops around the world, with worldwide renowned brands, such as: MAC, Carolina Herrera, Victoria’s Secret, Shiseido, Lindt, Godiva, Johnnie Walker, Chivas, Absolut, Tanqueray, JBL, Lacoste and Desigual, among others.

The opening of this shop follows the final approval of the new regulation by the local customs authority. The border duty-free business already exists in other countries in South America, and it is very popular amongst Brazilian customers, who cross the borders for that purpose. With the new regulation, there will be a total of 32 Brazilian twin-cities with the right to operate duty-free border shops and Dufry intends to expand this business in all of these cities.
