From the traditional Border Duty Free Store to the all in one shopping experience Bromélia Ballroom

Rafael Parodi, Commercial Department, SIÑERIZ SHOPPING

In recent times, the sector has been characterized by major changes regarding buyers habits, layouts concepts, and the significant technology influence, among other variables.

Six years ago, SIÑERIZ FREE SHOP bet on a radical change in its approach by building a much larger store, creating a new mix and specific areas for products and innovative visuals, transforming itself step by step into a shopping center and thus evolved the buying experience.

As a result of this new strategy, SIÑERIZ went from being a typical travel retail store to the "Shopping Center Experience" linked to the Uruguay-Brazil border.
