CBI Retail Ventures opened the largest duty-free retail store in DFW Airport.
CBI Retail Ventures, a Fort Worth, Texas-based retail development company, unveiled its largest airport project to-date: a new 19,000-square-foot, two-level duty-free store located inside Dallas Fort Worth International Airport’s Terminal D between Gates D22 and D23 just past the security checkpoint. The store opened Wednesday, Dec. 20, 2017.
“We are proud to not only have developed the largest duty free store in the Western Hemisphere, but also have designed a first-of-its-kind immersive store experience at DFW Airport,” Steve Flory, chief executive officer at CBI Retail Ventures, said in a statement. “The end result reflects the convergence of entertainment and retail, as well as the coming together of digital and physical experiences. This truly marks the pinnacle of DFW Airport’s goal of being a world-class global superhub. It is a blend of international couture, state-of-the-art technology, and luxurious services — all while capturing the spirit and beauty of modern Texas.”
The store sells perfumes, cosmetics, clothing and liquor from leading high-end brands like Estee Lauder, Armani and Johnnie Walker. 817-270-5700. www.cbiretailventures.com
