Channel Island’s company Healthspan is to open a new shop in the airside departures lounge at Jersey Airport following a 6 year lease agreement.
The Guernsey based supplier of nutritional supplements, which also has a shop in St Helier, will sell a range of health and travel products, as well as a selection of luxury gifts.
The airport-based shop will occupy a space of 600 sq feet and will be located next to current retailers Jersey Pearl, La Mare Wine Estate and Jersey Pottery in one of the 3 outlets created as part of the 2009 refurbishment of the airside departures lounge. Work is currently taking place to fit out the new shop which is due to open on Wednesday 26 October 2011.
Chief Executive and founder of Healthspan, Derek Coates, said, "I am delighted to announce the opening of Healthspan’s exciting new retail outlet, the first of its kind in any UK airport. This is an exciting new venture and we aim to offer customers our top brand nutritional and well-being supplements, as well as selling a wide choice of luxury gifts."
Jersey Airport Director, Julian Green, said, "Healthspan is a leading brand name in the Channel Islands and we are pleased to welcome them to Jersey Airport. We look forward to working with them and wish them every future success."
