SHOPPING IN CYPRUS

Postby Lana1978 » Sun Apr 03, 2011 9:33 am

Hi there

I wonder if there is anyone who could help me ? I have a few general questions on buying some stuff in Cyprus.

Tell me if I order on Marc & Spencer's website , do they deliver in Cyprus like clothes and stuff , if so do I pay customs?
That goes for the Amazon website too??
Which is the best place, and reasonable prices to buy like Fridge, washing machine, TV and Tumble drier?
Also somewhere for a nice soft leather lounge sweet....soft armrest .

And what you think is the average prices for these item .

Thank you very much if you reply : just trying to do some home work before we arrive !!

As far as I know:

M&S do not deliver to anywhere outside the UK.
Amazon will deliver certain goods outside of the UK, but not others.
You should pay no import duty on goods imported from an EU country.

Marks and Spencers have 12 Stores in the RoC, stock is usually the same (As UK), but 15 - 20 % more expensive

Just one question:

Why on earth would you want to order from Asda in the UK and have the goods shipped two thousand miles to Cyprus?

Just seen this. Just so you are aware, there are different franchise owners for Marks & Spencers. Limassol franchise is different to Nicosia franchise. Though the branches advise what other branches have, its only within their franchise. Nicosia can't tell you if Limassol have a specific item. Crazy, unhelpful and a pain in the arse.
