The Jeju Tourism Organisation (JTO) is offering customers visiting its Seogwipo City downtown duty-free store a free gift when they spend over ₩300,000 ($270). The 1,980sq m (861sq ft) outlet located on the south of the island, which opened on March 30 2009, offers a range of product categories including fragrances, cosmetics, liquor and tobacco.
JTO duty-free shop purchasing department member Joshua Lee told DFNIonline: "We are providing customers with a free gift from the island’s agricultural industry and offer discounts on various other items. We also hold lotteries where customers can win discount coupons for hotels."
Lee, who revealed that cosmetics account for 25% of total sales while handbags, wallets and belts represent another 15%, cited Red Ginseng as the best-performing brand. "It has many items exclusive to duty-free and a wide range of products compared with other local shops. Customers on their honeymoon tend to purchase it either as gifts for their parents or for health reasons."
