Ted Baker and Thomas Pink cheaper in the UK

I got a day to head out to the outlet mall In Bicester Village on my recent trip to the UK. All the usual suspects are here at great prices including Gucci, Prada, Fendi, Armani,Dior +++++

The odd thing that I noticed was that the busy stores seemed to be the American Brands Levis,Ralph Lauren and Tory Burch. All the products are priced considerably higher than in the USA.

The opposite was true for UK brands Ted baker and Thomas Pink, the stores were not as busy and the prices were considerably cheaper than in the USA.

This limited research would lead me to believe that you should get a US address to purchase US brands in the USA and a UK address to Purchase UK brands in the UK.

My suitcase was full of Christmas presents when I came home and I have since placed an order online to ship to my UK address and then reship to Canada.

Boots UK cucumber cleansing wipes

I was on a business trip again to London last week and I had to make my usual trip into a Boots pharmacy to purchase Boots essentials cucumber wipes for my wife. This is the only thing that she uses to remove her make up (war paint) at night. Sometimes I wonder if she has tried all of the products available in Canada and just wants to send me on a wild goose chase. This product is very cheap £1.50 for a pack of 25 or £3.00 for 3 packs. I bought 18 packs and am hoping that this lasts her a while, but it the future I have pointed her to a mail forwarder in the UK so that she can order herself directly from Boots. Boots also has a great loyalty program called the Boots Advantage Card.

Canada EU Free trade agreement being negotiated in London

This is going to open up the whole EU to Duty Free purchases from Canada.

Canadian retailers will benefit from the duty-free purchases of Canadian made goods by EU residents.

Some specific products that are mentioned are Maple Syrup and Tilley Hats. But I am sure that there will be hundreds more that make sense.
