Focusing on luxury fashion, accessories and jewellery, the new store offers more than 6,000 square feet of premium shopping. Passengers can treat themselves to brands ranging from DKNY, M Missoni and Armani Jeans, to Michael Kors, Swarovski and Paul Smith.
The new space also includes a Harrods' Food Hall area, as well as the chance to buy own-brand gifts from the world-famous retailer.
The opening comes during one of Gatwick’s busiest times of the year, with the airport expecting to handle more than three million departing passengers over the six-week school summer break¹.
The launch of Harrods’ new boutique follows the opening of ten new and revamped stores in the South Terminal. The first phase of retail outlets, which included Kurt Geiger, Hugo Boss and Lacoste, opened their doors on 18 July. Brands new to airport retail include Ernest Jones, and Aspinal of London.
Later this year, an additional 12 new or revamped stores, which also have a focus on fashion, will complete the transformation of South Terminal retail.
Spencer Sheen, Head of Retail at London Gatwick, said: “This year, we will spend £21 million in the South Terminal departure lounge to enhance our retail offering and ensure we deliver a world-class experience for our passengers. The new Harrods store at Gatwick is a very important part of this. Not only does it look fantastic, the boutique offers an excellent mix of brands that will delight our passengers. We look forward to continuing to work closely with Harrods to make the most of this exciting opportunity.”
Raj Assanand, Harrods Business Development Director, said: “I am delighted to see another fantastic Harrods Airport store open, following the success of our other airport sites. The new Gatwick store follows in Harrods’ dedication to the best in luxury fashion and accessories.”
