Shoppers in Tokyo can soon take advantage of a new duty-free store to be set up in one of the upper floors of Ginza's Mitsukoshi Department Store.
The Japan Times reported:
An airport terminal, duty-free shops and a department store chain are teaming up to open an airport-style duty-free store in Tokyo’s ritzy Ginza district.
Japan Airport Terminal Co., NAA Retailing Corp. and Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings Ltd. will open Japan Duty Free Ginza on the eighth floor of the Ginza Mitsukoshi department store next fall.While stores at Japan's major airports and tourist spots eliminate the sales tax, the new store will also "ditch" tariffs like stores at airports, according to the article.
