In the year ahead, Sheremetyevo Duty Free will also open a multi-brand fashion & accessories and watches & jewellery shop and several luxury monobrand boutiques, plus four gate shops in Terminal C. The total retail space upon completion of all stores will reach around 5,500sq m.

We are very excited about this development with our partners and are looking forward to the opening of all shops and boutiques later this year. The new terminal is state of the art for the 21st century; it is very modern, customer-friendly and equipped with many digital elements – and so are our shops.”
