Le Clos Lands in Style at DXB Terminal 3 Arrivals
Le Clos, the award-winning luxury wine and spirits retailer, today announced the opening of its first outlet in Dubai International Airport’s Terminal 3 Arrivals. Centrally located in the Baggage Claim hall next to Belt 7, the new store will offer millions of arriving airport visitors access to an exceptional range of internationally acclaimed vintages and will open with a month of exclusive promotional offers.
The new store is the tenth outlet in Le Clos’ estate and will be the first welcome for millions of Emirates passengers arriving in Dubai, offering a taste of luxury and their first opportunity to enjoy an exceptional duty-free experience, from global icons such as Opus One to The Macallan age statements to everyday icons from just $28.
Iain Delaney, Chief Operating Officer, MMI said,
“This new offering marks an important step for Le Clos and follows the hugely successful store openings in Dubai International Airport’s Terminal 1 earlier this year. This new location in Terminal 3 Arrivals is a significant milestone for the company. We can now provide millions more travelers with the Le Clos experience – giving them the opportunity to enjoy the most popular products in our range that deliver both quality and value, as they arrive in Dubai.
“Our 10th store is the culmination of much hard work and planning and with the invaluable support of Dubai Airports, we’ve been able to achieve our ambition to provide an exciting and innovative shopping experience built around world-class service from our friendly team of qualified wine and spirits professionals.”
