A digital business that lists over 3,000 duty free stores from around the world is targeting the COVID-19-hit travel retail sector as a new outlet for potential sales.
DutyFreeZone.com, which is poised to launch a “significantly upgraded” version of a website originally set up in 1998, is the brainchild of Florida-based businessman Reynald Grattagliano.
Grattagliano claims that the revamped platform will enable customers to buy duty free products as duty paid, from a range of vendors, for delivery in their own country. It will also allow travellers to buy duty free products via click and collect when they are travelling, he said.
However, no duty free retailers appear to have signed up yet and Grattagliano said brand negotiations were “subject to NDAs”.
DutyFreeZone.com founder Reynald Grattagliano is currently in France promoting his website.
