TOKYO -- Japanese beauty supplier Pola Orbis Holdings recently opened tax-free stores in Australia and Vietnam, and plans for another in Malaysia to capture demand from the anticipated upswing in tourism from pandemic lows.
Subsidiary Pola set up shop at a Lotte Duty Free store that opened in Sydney last month. The entire establishment spans 3,000 sq. meters and houses over 150 brands. The location is due to launch full-scale operations in August.
