Luxury sales for 2009 in the UK have been much better than expected. The weaker pound has finally found its fans, with 90% of research participants expecting strong sales increases for this year. For tourists, the UK is now a less expensive destination with results showing that “more than a quarter of the British luxury industry is generating more than 25 per cent of its sales from visitors to the UK.”
Whilst Americans hold the majority of visitors shopping for luxury in the UK, Middle Eastern visitors have also been vital as they tend to buy in bulk- a quick pre-Ramadan stopover perhaps!
