Home electronics chain Bic Camera Inc. said Thursday it will set up a joint venture with Japan Airport Terminal Co. to enhance the sale of tax-free products to foreign travelers.

The agreement will combine Bic Camera’s distribution networks with the experience of Japan Airport Terminal, which operates duty-free shops at Tokyo’s Haneda and other Japanese airports.

The two companies plan to launch home appliance stores offering consumption tax-free shopping to foreign visitors at domestic and overseas airports as well as urban districts in Japan.
