Chanel Boutique In Heathrow Airport Terminal 3 Stopped Stocking Bags

February 20, 2013  |  CHANEL, NEWS

Sometimes I ask the question; why this and why that? After receiving a quality tip from our member ‘Vixxen’, we just needed to figure this one out. What’s happening to our favorite Chanel boutique store in Heathrow?

Heathrow was a favorite spot for most European bag lovers, especially terminal 3. Our favorite Chanel boutique is open from 7.00 to 22.00. It’s stocked with bag, bags and bags. Oh yes, Chanel jumbo flap bag, Chanel 2.55 reissue and tote and medallions. They are all there and discounted.

The Chanel boutique in Heathrow airport was located in the tax-free area. So Chanel lovers could buy their bag at 14% discount because there are no administration fee involved. Some will even buy a cheap ticket, fly there for the night, just to get their hands on their favorite bags.

But recently some disappointing news have been announced. Chanel is going to stop stocking iconic bags at Heathrow (like the classics). That’s their new policy. What a disappointing news.

So what else is there to do? US and Asian can travel all the way to EU and get their Chanel bags with tax-refund. Europeans don’t have much choices. Can we travel all the way to US or Asia to get some tax-refund or discount? Sight, I wish Chanel could make our life easier and not harder.

  1. Hi girls! my mom’s BFF will be dropping by London Heathrow tomorrow and wed, and I was thinking if they might still have the limited edition 2.55 flap bags even though they no longer stock iconic bags… does their new policy include all kinds/types of the 2.55? because I wanna get the jumbo caviar GHW in dark navy blue which is limited edition (?) and it can’t be found in SG… anyone knows?:/

  2. I called the chanel boutique at heathrow this morning. The store still sells the classic bags and the staff did not say they will stop stocking.
