Kuoni is opening a new travel shop within its headquarters based in Dorking.
The operator’s head office will be home to the new store which will be open by appointment Monday-Friday 9am-5pm from October 4.
The Surrey town has been the home of the company’s business operations for almost 50 years.
The company relocated from its previous base on Deepdene Avenue to the current offices on Station Road in 2018.
Kuoni also had a shop located on Dorking high street, which closed during the pandemic.
The new store will bring the number of Kuoni outlets across the UK to 27 with locations from Aberdeen to Southampton and Cardiff to Norwich.
Staff, including store manager Sue Eaton and assistant manager Justine Poutney have been recruited.
Managing director Mark Duguid said: “This is a very original store, and our aim is to create something very special we know customers are going to love.
“By making it appointment only we can give each customer the time they deserve to plan their next trip and they can enjoy coffee, tea or a glass of champagne whilst they’re doing it.
“We have many loyal customers in Dorking, Leatherhead, Reigate and the surrounding areas who we know will welcome the news today.
“Our plan is to activate local marketing and we’ll be hosting a customer event so we can invite people along to see the space, meet our team and get inspired.”
