THE Duty Free Philippines is set to be established an outlet on the first quarter of 2018 in Zamboanga City.
Christopher Lawrence Arnuco, Zamboanga City Special Economic Zone (Zamboecozone) chairperson and administrator, made the announcement citing the Duty Free Shoppe will be located at the Zamboecozone complex at Sitio San Ramon in the village of Talisayan.
Arnuco said that he and Duty Free Philippines chief operating officer Vicente Pelagio Angala on Wednesday, November 29, signed a lease agreement for the establishment of the store.
Arnuco said the Duty Free Philippines is “is very positive of the Zamboanga’s prospect for trade and investments.”
He said the people who wish to buy duty-free products need not go anymore to either Clark and Subic or Fiesta Mall once the Zamboecozone Duty Free Shoppe is open.
He added the public will spend less since the Duty Free Shoppe will already be in the city.
The items being sold in Duty-Free stores are tax-free, imported, and cannot be found in any of the shopping malls.
