Hema takes off at Stansted Airport

Dutch retailer opens its fifth store in the UK, based at Stansted Airport, Essex.

Hema’s presence airside at Stansted allows passengers to purchase last-minute essentials and treats for their journeys and beyond. This first venture into the airside retail sector sees a specially curated range offering an inspiring selection of baby, homeware, beauty and travel accessories – all designed exclusively in-house. This wide product range ensures the travelling consumer has access to everything they require.

This store launch marks the next stage in Hema’s expansion plan. It is the latest addition to their portfolio of almost 700 stores across seven countries, serving more than six million visitors every week.

With more than 22 million passengers travelling through Stansted each year, the location is ideal for Hema to expand its UK customer following.

Tjeerd Jegen, CEO of Hema: “Stansted’s departure lounge is undergoing a multi-million pound transformation and Hema is excited to be one of the leading brands set to make this airport a real shopping destination. Our store has been curated with the traveller in mind, offering tailored collections aimed at this particular market. Our philosophy is to make life easier and more fun, and where better to do this than a busy international travel hub.”

Hema is a store which loves making daily life easier and more fun for its customers.

Operational since 1926, Hema believes that great quality and design should be available to everyone at a great price. This is why all stores offer only 100% Hema-designed products to guarantee customers will only get the best products and services for daily use.
