Tourists go shopping with suitcases to stock up on luxury items
The prices for luxury items such as clothing, make-up and fashion accessories are cheaper than ever. A whole horde of tourists are in the shops and buy with great zeal. Many of the customers are already on a shopping spree with suitcases and gain noble bargains. Tourists from the Gulf States and other countries are copiously lavish with luxury goods. Advertising measures are probably not required.
In luxury boutiques on bargain hunting
The reason for the customers who are keen to buy is the collapse in the value of the Turkish lira. Since the beginning of the year, the losses of the lira against the dollar are hard to believe and reach record numbers up to 45 percent. The concerns of investors are great, but the traders and customers benefit. High-end clothing and fashion boutiques sell in full quantities and thereby make good profits. Only the hotel prices are not to get a blast, because these are already long term. "For the current season, the bookings have recovered well," said the spokeswoman of the tourism group Thomas Cook. According to statistics, Turkey is in second place of the most popular tourist destinations. However, the fact that the decline of the lira affects the demand for holiday bookings is not the case. However, the country is again in the top list of popular destinations.
Even German tourists can benefit from the decline of the lira and buy discounted in Turkish shops. The exchange rate is particularly effective for tourists and makes shopping fun. Whether the popular travel destination will now welcome more tourists remains so far questionable. The bags of tourists are certainly ready for shopping in Turkey and attract bargain hunters in the Turkish shops.
