Duty-free shops at the airport

My friend told me that if I bought souvenirs in duty-free shop at the airport, they would be cheaper. Is it correct ? And are there any duty-free shop at the Geneva Airport ?

Thank you very much

However you may be liable to duty when you clear customs, depending on the value of the purchase.

Re: Duty-free shops at the airport

This is my favorite response of the day. There is nothing more oxymoronic than the possibility of paying "duty" on items bought at the "duty free" shop. Nothing more needs to be said
