Lifestyle brand Oliver Bonas has just opened its largest airport store at London’s Gatwick Airport. The new North Terminal outlet offers womenswear, travel essentials and gifts.
British lifestyle brand Oliver Bonas has launched a new store in London Gatwick’s North Terminal, bringing its unique range of fashion and homeware to the airport’s 46 million annual passengers.
The 82m2 outlet, which opened its doors for the first time on Sunday (3 March), is the largest Oliver Bonas airport store – and the first to offer tax-free prices.
The store features a bespoke interior design with travel-inspired fixtures. The product range has been specially curated for travelling customers, with Oliver Bonas’ signature print-themed womenswear and jewellery available alongside sunglasses, photo frames and candles. The Nellie Travel Collection, featuring portable jewellery boxes and makeup bags, is also stocked.
The brand’s “growing presence in busy UK travel hubs makes it the perfect fit for Gatwick”, says Rachel Bulford, Gatwick Head of Retail.
Oliver Bonas Gatwick is the first of eight new stores that the fast-growing brand – founded in Fulham by entrepreneur Oliver Tress in 1993 – will open across the UK this year, bringing its total store estate to over 85.
The addition of Oliver Bonas to Gatwick’s departure lounge further extends the airport’s strong portfolio of much-loved British fashion brands, including Reiss, Cath Kidston and Ted Baker.
Passengers shopping at Oliver Bonas before they fly will also benefit from Gatwick’s “carry on-board” service, which allows them to bring a shopping bag onto their flight alongside the pre-existing hand luggage allowance.
Rachel Bulford, Head of Retail, Gatwick Airport said:
“It’s a very exciting time for retail at Gatwick. We are continuing to strengthen the airport’s store offering and it’s fantastic to have Oliver Bonas on board with us. This aspirational yet affordable brand is a popular fixture of many British high streets, and its growing presence in busy UK travel hubs makes it the perfect fit for Gatwick.
“We’re delighted that, alongside the wide range of brands in Gatwick’s departure lounges, passengers can now also enjoy the unique Oliver Bonas experience before they head off on their next adventure.”
Oliver Tress, Founder and Managing Director, Oliver Bonas said:
“We are so excited to have chosen Gatwick North for our second airport store. We have developed a highly curated collection of homeware, gifts and fashion, all designed in-house in our OB Studio, and have a fabulous team in place. We are thrilled to open our doors.”
