London Gatwick celebrates £40m retail transformation

Fashion retailer Zara has opened its largest airport store to date at the terminal while outdoor specialist Snow+Rock has opened its first airport store there.

The new stores mark the final phase of a £40 million upgrade of the South Terminal departure lounge which includes 21 new store openings. The first phase, which was completed in August 2013, saw Aspinal of London and Ernest Jones open their first airport stores and Harrods launch a 6,500 sq ft flagship store focusing on fashion and accessories.

Spencer Sheen, head of retail at London Gatwick said: "We are very proud of the completion of the South Terminal International Departure Lounge which takes airport shopping and the passenger experience to a whole new level.

"Our new retail space not only demonstrates our forward thinking but also our desire to deliver on what our passengers ask for, be it a luxury department store or a high-street favourite. And the results we have seen so far speak for themselves as more than 80% of our passengers have rated as ‘excellent’ and ‘good’ the selection of retail outlets available at the airport."
