Harbour Duty Free Shop To Open Soon

A new duty free shop is to open at Jersey's Elizabeth harbour.

It will be operated by Capi Duty Free Ports in the terminal building in time for the summer season.

Ports of Jersey says motorists will be able to order from the car lanes, or passengers can order in advance online and collect purchases after clearing security.

A secure unit will be built to store duty free alcohol and other items.

Capi Duty Free Ports (part of B&S) has been given a three year contract following a tender process.

"We are very pleased to be offering this new service at the Elizabeth Terminal and to be building on our long-term partnership with Ports of Jersey. With this new opportunity we will provide visitors and residents travelling from Jersey our strong Duty Free offer.” - Guus Jonge Poerink, Managing Director of Capi.

A purpose built duty-free shop is part of the Harbour Master Plan.  The first planning application for the redevelopment of the Elizabeth Harbour was submitted last week.

 “I’m pleased that we can now offer our ferry passengers the opportunity to buy duty free goods at the harbour.

We ran a rigorous process to select the company to run the new facility, and I hope passengers take advantage of the new service as soon as it is available.” - Harbour Master, Captain Bill Sadler.

Ports of Jersey says the new facility will open as soon as the required permissions and licences are issued.
