You can visit IMM outlet. There are some Made in Europe Samsonite luggage at one of the travel stores, but not the model you want.Jennifer wrote: I was looking at both brands, just in case one of the choices was not available at the store, then would still have an alternative .
If you want to buy after security checkpoint, there's the Lufthansa shop inside.
Actually, the best way is to buy outside of FRA. Discard your Santa Barbara or any old luggage you bring over, and replace it with the new one there and then. You can get the dept store SA to help you set your PIN on the spot.
At your last EU disembarkation city, bring along the VAT form to the VAT customs counters (GlobalBlue, Premier, etc.) for stamping and submission (choose credit or cash), BEFORE CHECK-IN. The good thing at FRA is right beside the VAT counter, they have heavy duty trolleys for all passengers submitting VAT claims to load their inspected luggage (TBH, they don't inspect at all!). They will then collect your luggage and convey them to the cargo.
