There’s a big, new tax and duty free shopping area in Terminal 5 at Stockholm-Arlanda Airport that looks pretty snazzy.
Larger than six tennis courts, the shop carries all the standard upscale offerings, plus a few new items. Arlanda is the first airport to offer two Swedish-based brands: Make-Up Store and Mackmyra Whiskey, the first Swedish malt whiskey. Set up as a collection of “worlds,” including the World of Cosmetics, the World of Perfume, and the World of Chocolate, complete with chocolate-making demonstrations, the store also boasts the world’s first “snusidor.”
At first I thought this might be one of those much sought-after napping-nooks. But then they would have named it a “snoozidor.” No, the “snusidor” is actually a walk-in, refrigerated display area for snus – a traditional Swedish smokeless tobacco that accounts for about 50% of all the tobacco sales at Arlanda airport.
