Tenders Invited for Panamanian Free Shops

Tocumen International Airport is inviting bids for two bookstores and two shoe stores.

Thursday, July 9, 2009

5 bidders have already put in technical and economic bids for the bookstores, and the winner of the first store is expected to be announced in two weeks.

A Prensa.com article explains how this bidding process works: "The second best offer will have the opportunity to match the first in order to win the second space. If none of the participants is capable of matching the first offer, the company responsible for the first proposal could operate both stores, to be located in separate ends of the central corridor of the airport."
