Submitted by: PR Marketer
Europe (OPENPRESS) February 8, 2011 - The Institute for Public Policy Research reports through the BBC News website that at least 5.5 million British-born people live abroad on a permanent basis. They mostly settle in Australia, Canada, Spain, France, and Portugal. These expats usually turn to their favourite online shops to find items that are sourced from the United Kingdom.
It is a well-known fact that furniture, electronics and other consumer goods tend to be much more expensive in Spain and Europe. While UK shops like Argos UK or Amazon UK offer these large, heavy and expensive items, they do not these products outside of the UK. Many British Expats in Spain other parts of Europe also shop for large products from Amazon Europe. However, there isn't currently an Amazon website which delivers to the whole of the continent.
In an aim to help expats living abroad shop for their favourite products, The Expat Market Place was created, offering over 20,000 top branded products for sale. Since its debut in 2010, its website TheExpatMarketPlace.co.uk has been catering to British expats in Spain and Europe who want medium to large products at a good price, plus a free door-to-door delivery arrangement to boot.
John Wallis, CEO & Co founder of UK Shopping in Spain and The Expat Market Place explains: "The Expat Marketplace was created because over the last five years, expats continually contacted us looking for the same type of products via our UK Shopping in Spain website, UKShoppingInSpain.com."
"As expats ourselves, we realised there was a real need for a company who could sell those products directly as it is so difficult to find the choice in Europe that expats are used to at a great price," Mr. Wallis adds.
TheExpatMarketPlace.co.uk, the online shopping store offers a wide range of items such as baby products; designer wear; garden and DIY; gifts and gadgets; health and beauty items; home merchandise and furniture; home entertainment; jewellery and watches; office items, PCS and phones; photography goods, sports and leisure items; as well as toys and games.
TheExpatMarketPlace.co.uk flaunts a unique network of over 150 agent collection & delivery points across Spain, enabling it to offer expats the Shop & Collect service. Through this, customers do not have to wait in all day for the delivery of smaller items that they can collect at their convenience.
