POLA has opened its first airport duty-free store outside Japan at The Shilla Duty Free Changi Airport Store bringing the B.A product line to travellers for the first time.
POLA’s Counter At The Shilla Duty Free Changi Airport Store
POLA Counters are centred around POLA’s top-of-the-line brand “B.A” and are decorated primarily in the carefully thought-out “black” design, which represents the brand’s innovative spirit. The design was created by advancing traditional styles further and creating a modern, sophisticated, and luxurious space.
The counter design at The Shilla Duty Free Changi Airport Store follows the design at department stores, extending the brand’s unified look and theme, however, at the same time, this design also aims to match the travel retail environment so that customers can quickly see and enjoy the product range and best-sellers even during their short stay in the stores. The travel retail counters provide customers with the POLA brand experience even in a busy environment.
The counter will be open at The Shilla Duty Free Changi Airport Store at Terminal 2.
Singapore Changi Airport serves as a regional hub, making The Shilla Duty Free Changi Airport Store a strategic and choice destination for POLA to reach out to the larger markets in the ASEAN region. In partnership with The Shilla Duty Free Singapore, the leading travel retailer known to redefine shopping experience with experiential and quality offerings, POLA will accelerate efforts to open new stores primarily in ASEAN countries so as to further increase the brand presence and expand travel retail business outside Japan.
POLA’s most prestigious brand B.A – Aging care product line
POLA’s top-of-the-line “B.A” has progressed continuously by utilising the company’s latest technology since their launch in 1985, all with the aim of realising POLA’s corporate philosophy of “creating everlasting happiness among people and communities wishing for beauty and health.” The annual sales of the B.A series have surpassed 40 billion yen, and the brand awareness has been increasing rapidly in Asia, mainly in China.
The sales for POLA’s travel retail business are driven by the B.A brand, such as B.A Lotion, B.A Wash, and B.A Eyezone Cream.
