I don't think it's been a cheap option for some time. Even worse with the v euro.

Beat's me why you dont get the local carpenters to make what you want, i know some are expensive but it pays to shop around.

You are so right, I would even go so far as to say the supermarkets here are cheaper than the south for some food stuffs, I know we havent got as much choice here, but you really have to be selective now with as you say, the pound/euro being almost equal, I wonder if the salaries in the South reflect what it cost to shop for neccessities

i don't think going south to shop is good value anymore - chuck in 25 Euro's a month car insurance and the petrol to get there, not to mention the wear and tear on the car and you could actually be loosing money....

Agree with NN. Was there yesterday, out of necessity, saw a pair of jeans in Debenhams - 45 on printed label, Debenhams sticky label 76 Euros. 100 changed in the bank 100.51 Euros received!



BTW Jubilee Exchange just before the border is still closed following the robbery/assault of the owner last week.

I am so shocked to hear of the sad news regarding the gentleman at Jubilee money exchange at Metahan, he was always pleasant and cheerful and can't

believe the result of this cowardly attack, sad news for all his friends and family.

I use them frequently, nice people. So sad. Suspect things like this are going to increase throughout the World as the recession starts to bite.

still in the cold old UK and feels odd that due to the pound/euro situation a lot of continentals travelling to UK for stuff !! so although a "credit crunch" some retail sales are doing well ! good for brits who bought euro property but not so good when they visit and go out to eat or shop !
