Singapore Cruise Centre seeks duty free and general merchandise retail partner

Singapore Cruise Centre Pte Ltd (SCC) is inviting interested parties to respond to a Request for Qualification (RFQ) in an open tender to win the duty free and general merchandise concession at the HarbourFront and Tanah Merah terminals.

Announcing the tender via The Moodie Davitt Report, the SCC said it is investing in the redesigning and upgrading of its commercial offer at both terminals through the expansion and reconfiguration of the main retail space in the Departures and Arrivals channels.

SCC has elected to consolidate several separate contracts for the existing duty free liquor & tobacco; perfumes & cosmetics; fashion & travel accessories; and confectionery concessions. These are being merged into a single concession that will run for five years with a two-year extension option, commencing 1 April 2017.

The incumbents are DFS Group (liquor & tobacco) and Gebr Heinemann for the balance of the business.

The opportunity covers 542sqm of retail space, serving over 6.3 million ferry passengers and 560,000 cruise passengers annually.
