Chanel Boutique In Heathrow Airport Terminal 3 Stopped Stocking Bags

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.

      Hi Vera,

      Heathrow do not stock iconic bags anymore, there are six iconics, the Chanel Classic Flap Bag is one of them.

        Hi Alex,

          Hi MissV, can you clarify? So you want to buy from boutiques in London and not at the airport. Yes you can get VAT-refund if you’re a tourist. The only difference is that the stores at the tax-free area airport doesn’t include VAT in their prices.

    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?:/

      I just called them a few days ago, and to double check, I called again a week before and spoke to a different SA. They no longer stock ANY classic or popular bags: classic flaps, or 2.55 reissue.

      The only bags they will stock is the new season collections.

        Hi Amanda, the GST is a classic too right? Don’t understand why they do have the GST in stock.

        I was looking for a classic medium flap at T3 but SA told me they were no longer sell classic flap bags at Heathrow duty free shops, so that I got a GST instead but the dusty bag is very small and not so convient when stores and takes the bag out. It was at end do Jan13.

        Anyone knows the current price of the medium flap? Can it fit small wallet, mob, camera, mirror, tissue and other essential for going out? Is lambskin really hard to maintain? What the lambskin will look like after few years later? Any picture. One of my LV still looks like new after 7 years.
