Dixons Travel Comes To Bristol Airport
June 26th 2012 Dixons Travel, the UK's leading airport technology retailer, will open a brand new store at Bristol Airport on Wednesday 27 June. The welcome new addition, located in Bristol Airport's departure longue, will be the first store to open with the new 'Dixons Travel' branding and fascia, offering competitively-priced electricals for holidaymakers and business professionals alike.
The new store at Bristol Airport, which handles almost six million passengers a year, will offer an extensive range of products including a choice of nearly 200 sets of headphones, and over 100 different hardware products. In total, there will be approximately 1,000 different products on the shop floor.
Simon Preece, Commercial Director at Bristol Airport, comments: "We aim to provide a great shopping experience at Bristol Airport and a household name like Dixons makes a great addition to our departure lounge. Passengers have been telling us they want more choice when it comes to technology items, and we have listened - Dixons will have 1,000 products available in-store."
Dixons Travel also offers a 'reserve before you fly' scheme, where customers can call their closest airport store before travelling to reserve products which they then collect and pay for when they arrive at the airport. Phone numbers for each airport store – including those at Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Edinburgh, Birmingham and Manchester airports - can be found on the Dixons Travel website, www.dixonstravel.com.
Neil Hollins, Managing Director of Dixons Travel, says: "This is now our 25th store in the UK and significantly expands our offering to customers passing through UK airports. The Bristol Airport store launches our new branding but will offer the same excellent service and fantastically low prices that our travel-bound customers have come to expect. It's great for the South West and great for the airport itself."
Katie Bickerstaffe, CEO of Dixons Retail UK & Ireland commented: "I'm thrilled to see a Dixons Travel store in my home city. It's a great place to get those travel essentials before flying and with the 'reserve before you fly' scheme, you can order things conveniently in advance before collecting pre-flight. I know I'll be in there soon."
Some of the best-selling products that will be on sale at Bristol Airport's Dixons Travel include:
