Happy New Year and May the Force be with you!

As we bid farewell to an amazing 2016, the TRS team can’t help feel that 2017 is set to be the best year yet! With the addition of fantastic new brands, exciting new product development, and an appetite for doing things differently in Travel Retail.

Over the winter months, Star Wars mania has taken over TRS headquarters. Starting with the phenomenal success of the Star Wars Lightsaber Toothbrush range with sales reaching over 150,000 units in 2016! Stay tuned for new character designs and Travel Retail Exclusive gift sets!


The second wave hit when TRS signed an exclusive supply deal with the license owners of the Star Wars Fragrance Collection, launching a range of six EDP fragrances at World Duty Free stores across the UK, coinciding with the release of the blockbuster Disney film, “Rogue One”.


Neil Jerzak from Star Wars Fragrances, says “Our Star Wars fragrance collection launched in World Duty Free (UK) stores in November. Having visited the Gatwick store personally, I must say the customer experience and engagement was incredible. The Star Wars fragrances feature in primary positions, giving the consumers an opportunity to touch, sample and experience the fragrances. We are delighted by the presentation of the product and the support offered by World Duty Free.”



The next exciting installment of the Star Wars story is Tangle Teezer’s collaboration with Disney! The best selling detangling hairbrush brand will be launching two new Star Wars themed Compact Styler brushes in February 2017 alongside brand new Disney Princess and Frozen designs. These add to the growing list of Tangle Teezer collaborations, which include the famed fashion designers Lulu Guinness, and Markus Lupfer plus Limited Edition items from the super-cute Hello Kitty brand to the funky and kitsch accessories brand, Skinny Dip. Watch this space for the fabulous Flamingo prints this summer!

TRS strives to provide the Travel Retail industry with innovative concepts, new ideas and a refreshing approach to sales. This ethos continues to strengthen thanks to new and existing customers and the TRS teams dedication to their needs.
