T GALLERIA BY DFS, QUEENSTOWN WILL BE A NEW “RESORT GALLERIA” IN ICONIC RETAIL COMPLEX O’CONNELLS

 

MARCH 30, 2021 – DFS Group, the world’s leading travel retailer, is preparing to open a new T Galleria store in the heart of Queenstown, New Zealand, by mid-2022. The store will be located in one of Queenstown’s most popular retail and dining complexes, O’Connells, which will be substantially renovated by owners Skyline Enterprises.

 

Queenstown, a resort town in the South Island of New Zealand, has long been regarded as a favorite holiday destination thanks to its dramatic alpine scenery and multitude of year-round activities. In addition, its excellent dining and hospitality and entertainment options are particularly appealing to international travelers. The second-most visited location in New Zealand, it received around 1.2 million visitors in 2019.

 

T Galleria by DFS, Queenstown will occupy 1,800 square meters of space across two floors of the new O’Connells complex, providing an international retail experience unlike anything that is currently available in town. The store will feature an assortment of some of the world’s most famous luxury brands across fashion and accessories, beauty, watches and jewelry and wines and spirits, alongside some of New Zealand’s finest locally-made products. The O’Connells complex is a perfect site for the new store, ideally situated in the heart of Queenstown and featuring numerous food and beverage choices in addition to retail.

 

T Galleria by DFS, Queenstown will also be the first store in DFS’ new “Resort Galleria” concept which is being introduced to its global store portfolio. Casually sophisticated and inviting, the Resort Gallerias will showcase curated assortments of the best international and local brands, emphasizing an authentic sense of place and community. In Queenstown, the store will feature an open and airy design with an informal yet elegant feel, created from natural and sustainable locally-sourced materials.

 

“We are very excited to introduce, for the first time in Queenstown, a carefully curated selection of the best luxury retail and finest local products, further enhancing the reputation and appeal of this beautiful resort among discerning global travelers,” said DFS Group Chairman and CEO Benjamin Vuchot.

 

“We are delighted to welcome T Galleria and its new resort store concept to O’Connells. It fits perfectly with our vision for the new O’Connells as a blend of quality shopping with an artisan, locally focused food and beverage offering. O’Connells has long been a meeting and social space for locals and visitors and having the T Galleria store as part of the redeveloped O’Connells not only continues this tradition but is a strong endorsement of the revitalisation of downtown Queenstown,” said Skyline Enterprises Chief Executive Officer Geoff McDonald.

 

Queenstown experienced a 10 percent growth in international visitors from 2017 to 2019, prior to border restrictions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. DFS and Skyline Enterprises are confident that Queenstown will see a strong return to international travelers when borders reopen, given its stunning scenery, fresh alpine climate and numerous attractions.

 

T Galleria by DFS, Queenstown will be DFS’ third location in New Zealand. The retailer has operated T Galleria by DFS, Auckland in the iconic Custom House heritage building since 1997 and operates several boutiques in Auckland Airport.

 

T Galleria by DFS, Queenstown is the third store opening to be announced by DFS in 2021. In January the company opened its first downtown store in Hainan, China, with its partner Shenzhen Duty Free Group. In February, DFS announced a new T Galleria to be developed in Brisbane, Australia, by end-2022. In addition, the company is on track to open its largest and most significant flagship store to date, Samaritaine Paris Pont-Neuf by DFS, later this year in the French capital.
