Kuoni to open its first new store for two years in Aberdeen
Kuoni is to open its first new store for two years in Aberdeen as demand for travel continues to rise.
The shop will be the Kuoni’s 31st UK shop and follows the company’s decision to look at further potential new store locations in the year ahead.
The new Aberdeen shop is due to open on April 8, and will be staffed by two personal travel experts plus manager Chris Winpenny-Cushine (pictured below).
Aberdeen previously had a Kuoni store in the city’s John Lewis department store. The shop opened in 2013 but closed a year ago when John Lewis & Partners announced shop closures as part of its own business review.
Winpenny-Cushine said: “It’s great to be opening our store in Aberdeen again. It’s been a year since we closed our store within John Lewis so for the past year the Aberdeen team has been working from home with our virtual call centre.
“We’ve continued to use our travel expertise to reshape and plan travel for our customers, so we’ve stayed with the business throughout.
“We are a trusted brand and have always had very loyal customers so felt confident that opening our own store would be a great opportunity just as travel is taking off again.
“It will be amazing to have our regular customers and new customers back in-store planning their next holiday. We can’t wait to open the doors and welcome everyone back.”
Winpenny-Cushine and travel expert Ariana Feroz will welcome customers through the door while a third consultant is being recruited.
