First duty-free store opens at Lindbergh Field

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The first duty-free store at Lindbergh Field opened Monday.

The shop is located in Terminal 2, which serves passengers flying to Canada, Japan, Mexico and the United Kingdom. Passengers can purchase chocolate, liquor, perfume, tobacco and other common duty-free products.

Duty-free retail outlets sell merchandise exempt from certain taxes and fees, under the condition that they are taken out of the country.

Duty Free Americas San Diego LLC will operate the business under a seven-year contract approved by the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority in July.

The airport authority recently revamped many of its concessions. Recent additions include San Diego-centric restaurants like Phil's BBQ, Bankers Hill Bar and Restaurant and Stone Brewing Company.
