The first duty-free store at Lindbergh Field is scheduled to open Monday.
The shop will be located in Terminal 2, which serves passengers flying to Canada, Japan, Mexico and the United Kingdom. Passengers will be able to purchase chocolate, liquor, perfume, tobacco, and other common duty-free products, according to the airport.
Duty-free retail outlets sell merchandise exempt from certain taxes and fees, under the condition that they are taken out of the country.
Duty Free Americas San Diego LLC will operate the business under a seven- year contract approved by the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority in July.
The airport authority has revamped many of its concessions recently. Among recent additions are San Diego-centric restaurants like Phil's BBQ, Bankers Hill Bar and Restaurant, and Stone Brewing Company.
