Heathrow Shop Apologizes for Anti-Chinese ‘Discrimination’
A duty-free shop at London’s Heathrow Airport has apologized for allegedly treating Chinese customers unfairly during a recent promotional campaign.
World Duty Free Group, which runs eight stores at the airport, reportedly offered a voucher for customers who spent a certain amount of money, but raised the required amount only for Chinese customers.
World Duty Free offered “sincere apologies” on its Weibo (link in Chinese) social media account Tuesday and said that “after close self-examination and having made further investigations, we have taken urgent steps to correct the implementation of this promotion going forward.”
