Ten Changi Airport bookstore concessions are up for tender across four terminals.
Changi Airport Group (CAG) has issued documentation seeking bids to operate books/magazine/stationery concessions spread across terminals 1 to 4 at Singapore’s airport.
Three store premises are being made available for each of the T1 (departure/transit lounge East and West, and departure/check-in-hall East), T2 (departure/transit lounge North and South, and departure/check-in-hall South) and T3 (departure/transit lounge North and South, and departure/check-in-hall North). One T4 store will be made available in departure/transit lounge North.
CAG says the concession requires that companies have “a good track record” in the business of retailing books, magazines, newspapers, postcards, pens and stationery items.
The contract is for three years, with a two-year option to extend at the discretion of CAG.
Meanwhile, concept stores Avenue Kids and Pure Gold Jewellers have launched in T2 in the public areas. It is Avenue Kids’ second full-fledged airport store following the opening of its first outlet in the T2 transit area last month.
