HAMBURG, Germany — A bartender pours colorful drinks in martini glasses, while across the aisle, a sales assistant offers chocolate truffles from a glass case. Meanwhile, a roulette wheel spins, workers happily arrange the latest selective scents, and others wait at the service desk to offer advice or wrap gifts. This is duty free? For Gebr. Heinemann, the answer is a resounding yes!
The company has roots in Hamburg since 1879, and is well regarded by vendors and distributors, but is starting fresh to build a brand name with consumers who are used to the nameless, faceless generic duty free stores.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
