In August of 1995, Duty Free Alaska began operation as the state authorized duty free concessionaire. From that time it has been our own test kitchen for many innovative retail efforts and concept shops. Duty Free Alaska is the original retail establishment which marked our entry into the retail trade by the David Green Group. Many of the current management and operational support associates have the unique benefit of continuing a 30 year legacy of duty free retailing under the previous concession holder these many years.
The perfect mix also exists in our method of operation. Our Group is well organized to move quickly as business often requires. Performance remains our strongest calling card. Spending is our best indicator of success.
Our sales results have benefited from a 8,000 square foot renovation of the Anchorage Airport retail operation in 1997. Our success has again provided the means for both new opportunities. We consider ourselves to be fortunate to enjoy partnerships and experiences with people who share our enthusiasm in this work. We all look forward to many new ventures.
