Tax Free Shopping With Your Own Online Shopper
CALLING ALL FASHIONISTAS! TAXFREE SHOPPING with your own online shopper! Inovative and creative ideas to get people travelling! Short Breaks from just £499 with the revamped TAXFREEPHILLY website.
With London Fashion Week just around the corner and you may feel a need to revamp your wardrobe (which is so ‘last year’)! But why pay London prices when you can combine a fabulous city break with tax free shopping in Philadelphia. The Tax Free Philly web-site offers on-the-ground advice and tips on how to get the best from your shopping experience in a city that seems purpose-made for the ardent shopper. The site offers packages to the city from just £499 (from the UK) per person by visiting TAXFREEPHILLY.
The £499 package with www.ba.com is based on two adults sharing a standard room for three nights (room only) at the Radisson Plaza Warwick hotel. Price includes return British Airways economy flights from London, for travel up to the 31st March. The offer is subject to availability and terms and conditions apply.
My biggest bugbear when taking a short break to any city is the amount of time it takes me to find my way around and find the best places to shop, eat and enjoy a night out. Well much of this work is done for you by Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau’ re-launched site which comes complete with helpful interactive maps and even a UK shopping ambassador, making shopping in Philadelphia less taxing. UK born Elena Brennan runs her own store in Philadelphia and has been appointed the UK Shopping Ambassador by the CVB, to provide the best insider tips and advice to UK visitors.
An authentic local point of contact, visitors wanting to know where to go for the best deals and what’s happening in the city during their visit can find out on the UK TaxFreePhilly twitter and facebook platforms.
Elena is available to answer any shopping questions and will provide handy hints on where to find the best bargains. Elena can also be found on twitter, whilst also blogging about the city and uploading video content on YouTube to help promote the city and its attractions.
The new website will also provide new ‘hot deals’ showing everything from cost comparisons on named brand items, which are often significantly lower in Philadelphia, to enter-to-win shopping vouchers.
Whilst the city is easy to navigate on a walkable grid layout, avoid traipsing through the streets needlessly with the interactive maps available on the site. Visitors can not only locate the best deals from the convenient list of 200 boutiques, speciality-items, well-known brand stores and department stores, but will also be shown its location within the city’s streets to help shoppers plot out their killer target route.
Leaving shoppers less exhausted and their feet light enough to hit the city night life, the website also links to the CVB’s own site which features additional information about dining, attractions, accommodation, clubs and bars to visit.
