Shopping for candy at Bahrain International Airport

Bahrain International Airport looks a little more colourful today following the opening of a Candy Cloud outlet.

Unveiled by Bahrain Duty Free, the 60sqm store is located on the main passenger walkway of the departures retail area and, according to its operator, is home to "top toy and confectionery brands, and the range is aimed at the young, and young at heart alike".

Speaking at the launch event, Bahrain Duty Free's general manager, Bassam Alwardi, outlined his excitement about the store and how the location has been totally transformed to offer an even better retail experience for our customers.

“As this location is in a prime location within the terminal it was important for us to ensure that we created something fun and innovative, and we believe that with Candy Cloud we have succeeded," he says.

He added that the outlet was a sign of the customer-centric approach adapted by the retailer; and how this opening is the first of many openings scheduled by the retailer for the remainder of 2016.

Bahrain Duty Free is currently refurbishing its 1,500sqm departures outlet.
