Rip off britain

The High Street fashion chains that push up their prices just for British customers

Global fashion chains such as Zara, Ralph Lauren and Forever 21 are picking the pockets of British shoppers with huge price mark-ups. The Spanish-owned and hugely successful label Zara is charging its British customers as much as 45 per cent more for its dresses, T-shirts, bags and shoes compared with other countries. A snapshot survey of 15 items from its new collection, available across Europe, shows UK shoppers are paying much more than in Spain.

  • Mark, using that logic, any article about anything relating to money in any way is relevant to this site. If that was the case, we’d have thousands of articles every single day – certainly everything from the FT would be relevant plus Bloomberg, dozens of other financial sites, the business sections of every newspaper, and so on ad infinitum. This article would be a good one for a site dedicated to the retail business.

    You’ve actually got much better – certainly a big improvement from your glory days of Las Vegas Sun articles – and most of what you now post up is relevant and interesting. But every now and again you have a relapse.
