It seems that New York is the favourite destination for Christmas shoppers from Britain and Europe this year, as people flock there to snap up bargains due to the weakening dollar. Apparently many believe that they can easily recoup the cost of their flights in a decent shopping spree! The New York Post described Fifth Avenue as a “virtual flea market” for European travellers due to the depressed dollar! I’m all for snapping up a bargain but I don’t think I’d want to travel all the way to New York to get it, especially not in the Winter time, much too cold!
