Duty-free outlet proud of two years of business


RETAILER and duty-free outlet Prouds PNG says it has been an exciting and challenging first two years operating at the Jackson international airport.
The stores which are featured prominently at the arrival and departure areas of PNG’s gateway to the world was officially opened by Prime Minister Peter O’Neill on July 2, 2015.
“The past 24 months have been exciting and challenging for us. The timing of our official opening in 2015, coincided with the launching of the Pacific Games which PNG hosted, and it was a really great way to start business in the fastest growing Pacific nation.” Prouds PNG manager Kiran Rathod said.
He said Prouds was well positioned to provide the best products and shopping experience for travellers.
“Aligned with the latest international duty-free travel retail trends, we carry international and major brands of liquor, tobacco, fragrances, confectionaries, watches and jewellery. With the wide range of international brands, travellers are able to purchase with confidence and will get value for their money,” Rathod said.
Meanwhile, the company is still trying to come to terms with the fire which destroyed its warehouse located at the CPL Group head office building at Gerehu in Port Moresby.
The fire which started at around 10pm on June 18 destroyed all its stock.
