Hellenic Duty Free Shops secures Piraeus port stores concession

GREECE. Hellenic Duty Free Shops has been awarded a concession to operate stores at three international cruise terminals at the port of Piraeus. The contract initially runs until the end of 2015, according to the Piraeus Port Authority (PPA).

The retailer, majority-owned by Dufry since April, will operate at the Themistocles cruise terminal in Themistocles-Palataki, at PPA’s main building at the Miaoulis terminal and at the Agios Nikolaos terminal – which is due to be relocated to a new terminal already under construction.

According to PPA, Hellenic Duty Free Shops will pay the authority 5% of its monthly turnover for the concession.

The Mediterranean port welcomed 2.067 million international passengers in 2012 – a year-on-year decline of -17.89% following a +35% increase in 2011 – on 763 international passenger vessels.
