Tiffany to Open a Boutique in Heathrow Airport

Tiffany & Co. plans to open a boutique in London’s Heathrow Airport, the world’s biggest, in March 2008. The 1,600 gross-square-foot store will be located in the airport’s new Terminal 5.

“Terminal 5’s spacious and streamlined design, with many amenities to enhance the travel experience, is ideal for a TIFFANY & CO. boutique,” said Melvyn Kirtley, president of Tiffany & Co. U.K. “We look forward to welcoming travelers and providing them with the quality, craftsmanship and outstanding customer service for which Tiffany is renowned.”

The Tiffany boutique, the luxury jeweler’s fifth London location, will feature architectural details of the famous New York flagship store, including ebonized Makore and mahogany woods and brushed stainless steel showcases. In addition, the stone entry arch and interior aisles will be widened to accommodate baggage-bearing travelers. And the plans include a private salon.

The jeweler’s collections that will be offered include diamonds in platinum and 18k gold settings, fine and fashion jewelry, watches, and silver gifts. The boutique will also showcase jewelry and objects from the Tiffany & Co. Archives.
