Just a couple of weeks ago, Erin O’Connor, judge of ‘The Face’ launched the world’s first personal shopper service at Heathrow airport. Already Heathrow has been named ‘Best Airport for Shopping’ four times in a row at the Skytrax World Airport Awards, independently voted for by passengers from 2010 – 2013.
Getting some last minute shopping done at the airport before taking off to go on holiday has always been a reason for me to get to the airport hours before my flight but now Heathrow Airport just got even more exciting! Bringing together over 300 shopping outlets and allowing customers to book a personalised consultation beforehand. Erin O’Connor shared her thoughts of this fabulous launch saying ‘Travel has been and still is a huge part of my life. The Personal Shoppers at Heathrow have incredible fashion and beauty insight which means they can pull a selection for me before I even arrive at the airport. I can make the most of my time before I board my flight and know that I will have everything I want for my trip.’
A team of Personal Shoppers are now available at Heathrow airport from the first flight to the last, on hand to assist with specific outfits for special events, give advice on new season trends and advise shoppers on beauty must-haves. Fluent in Russian, Arabic, Mandarin, Spanish, French, and Portuguese, Heathrow’s multilingual team are qualified to assist passengers from right across the globe.
The key benefits of the all new personal shopping service are;
♥ Home delivery option so you can shop to your heart’s desire without worrying about taking all of it on holiday
♥ Online product reservation so you are not disappointed at the last minute and ensure your products are ready when you arrive at the airport
♥ Free beauty treatments and advice on the latest trends and products. With over 50 luxury beauty treatments free of charge you can feel pampered before taking off
♥ Shop and collect, allowing you to shop on departure and pick up on return
♥ The best thing is there is no minimum spend so the service is open to all passengers…yay!
Heathrow’s Retail Director, Muriel Zingraff-Shariff said, ‘The launch of Heathrow’s Personal Shopper service is a world first, and one that we’re immensely proud of. We’re always looking to introduce new services which will benefit our passengers and help them make the most of the time. Whether you’re flying for business or leisure our Personal Shoppers can help you treat yourself or find the perfect gift for a loved one.’
I need to book my next holiday quickly just to get to Heathrow Airport ♥
