Mar 20,2020
The coronavirus pandemic has forced two duty-free shops at Gimpo International Airport in Seoul to shutter for the time being due to tumbling customer numbers, industry sources said Thursday.

Shilla Duty Free, one of Korea’s leading duty-free stores, said it has decided to suspend operations at the airport in western Seoul for one week, starting Saturday.

The company said it will decide whether to reopen its Gimpo outlet on March 29.
