Lotte World Tower Mall gets its Duty Free Licence back

The Korea Customs Service has granted 3 licences for large duty frees in Seoul. Lotte World, which lost its licence last year, has won one of the three new licences to operate a Duty Free shop starting next year. The other winners are Shinsegae Gangnam (located at Express Bus Terminal) and Hyundai Coex.

Here is an article about the announcement from yesterday:

Quote:
Top three retailers win new duty-free licenses in Seoul


Lotte Duty Free, Hyundai Department Store and Shinsegae DF have won new licenses to operate duty-free stores in the affluent Gangnam district in Seoul, the Korea Customs Service said on Saturday evening.

Two other big rivals SK Networks and HDC Shilla failed to get the ticket, after a six month battle to tap into the demand of growing Chinese tourists in southern Seoul.

The announcement came despite strong opposition from civic groups and lawmakers, who demanded that the government suspend the decision until the prosecution completes its investigation into the allegations that major conglomerates made donates to the Mir and Sports foundations in return for favors.



The Lotte Duty Free store located at the Lotte World Tower in Jamsil is to reopen with a new license given to Lotte for duty-free operation on Saturday. (Yonhap)

The KCS said it picked a total of six duty-free operators -- three conglomerates in Seoul and three small and medium enterprises in Seoul, Busan and Gangwon. Among the SMEs, Top City won the Seoul slot, Busan Duty Free for Busan, and Alpensia, for Gangwon.

The conglomerate winners get to operate their duty-free shops for five years, after spending up to one year preparing for the opening. The SME winners can renew their license once, having a maximum of 10 years of duty-free operations, the KCS said.

Apparently quelling worries over potential favors to a certain company, the KCS stressed that its license selection committee consisted of six professors, nine civil members from think tanks, civic groups and two government officials, who gathered for evaluation in a remote venue in Cheonan just three days ahead of the announcement.

The committee evaluated the companies in 12 categories, with the heaviest weights on the financial health, the optimum level of investment size and business sustainability, it said.

Hyundai Department Store marked the highest score of 801.5 out of the full 1,000, followed by Lotte Duty Free with 800.1 and Shinsegae DF with 769.6.

The bidding and selection process coincided with the influence-peddling scandal and lawmakers’ grilling over allegations that Lotte Group Chairman Shin Dong-bin and SK Group Chairman Chey Tae-won had requested in secret meetings that now-impeached president Park restore their duty-free licenses. Both companies have flatly denied the allegations.

“If the KCS had delayed or cancelled the selection of duty-free licenses without legal grounds, bidders would have suffered economic damage,” KCS said in a statement.

“If any selected company later turns out to have cheated in the selection process, the KCS will immediately cancel the license.”

With the new license, Lotte Duty Free will be able to reopen a duty-free store at Lotte World Tower in Jamsil, southeastern Seoul. Hyundai Department Store’s duty-free shop will be located at its Coex branch in Samseong-dong and Shinsegae DF’s outlet at Central City, a shopping and entertainment complex in Seocho.

All three locations are connected with mega retail facilities, seemingly in line with the government’s purpose of giving additional duty-free licenses, “to boost domestic demand by aggressively making use of the high demand of Chinese tourists and to create new jobs.”

In relation to duty-free business, Lotte vowed to invest 2.3 trillion won ($1.9 billion) for the next five years to attract foreign tourists, build tourism infrastructure in Gangnam and support SMEs. Hyundai Department Store is pouring 30 billion won over the next five years into tourism infrastructure in the Coex area and Shinsegae DF pledged 350 billion won investment for Gangnam tourism.

An other article from a couple of weeks ago that profiled Lotte's project (there was an article for each of the 5 candidates)

Quote:
[Duty Free] Lotte Duty Free touts World Tower attractions

This is the second installment in a series of articles on companies vying for Seoul’s new duty-free licenses to be issued Saturday -- Ed.

Lotte Duty Free, Korea’s largest duty-free operator, said that it would maximize tourist attractions in and around Lotte World Tower to build up the competitiveness of its branch there.

The company pledged Tuesday to invest 2.3 trillion won ($1.97 billion) over the next five years to bring in tourists, develop tourism infrastructure in southern Seoul and support small and medium businesses.

Lotte Duty Free hopes to bring in 17 million foreign tourists during that period, which would amount to 17 percent of all foreign visitors to Korea.



Lotte World Tower (Lotte)

Other attractions at Lotte World Tower include a movie theater, an aquarium and a vineyard-style classic concert hall.

Lotte also plans to build a Bellagio-style Harmony Music Fountain on the nearby Seokchon Lake and continue with public art projects such as the recent Rubber Duck and Supermoon exhibitions.

The Lotte Family Festival, a K-pop concert event that has been held 23 times in the past decade, will also be expanded.

Within Lotte World Tower, Lotte Duty Free will set up an exhibition space featuring displays about traditional Korean culture and video advertisements for regional tourism featuring Hallyu stars.

The Lottle World Tower duty-free branch will also devote 25 percent of its store space to small and medium companies to help smaller businesses reach more customers.

In addition, Lotte Duty Free said it would budget 150 billion won for community work through 2020.

Jang Sun-wook, CEO of Lotte Duty Free, said he would “make the World Tower duty-free store a tourism and culture hub to represent Korea, not only promoting Korea and Korean culture to the world but also sharing growth with small and medium businesses.”

If it reopens, Lotte Duty Free’s World Tower branch will be the largest in Korea at 17,334 square meters.

This structure proves that there is elegance in simplicity.

It's soars like a modernistic obelisk!
