Sydney, Nsw Australia (PressExposure) May 01, 2007 -- What makes this website unique is that it is a shopping directory which only includes UK based Retailers who offer Worldwide Delivery. It is divided into departments, making your search for a particular item much easier. Think of it as a virtual store guide, where each department has a number of brands. You visit the department, have a good look around, and go to the retailer's website that interests you most. Nothing could be simpler.
Site owner, Rachelle Font, had this to say, "UK retailers have finally gotten wise to the fact that there is a HUGE market for their products overseas! All of the Companies listed on UK Shopping Worldwide are UK based and ship worldwide."
According to one British Expat, "I used to have a hard time finding my favourite brands when I moved. I wanted to find UK retailers who would ship the products that I wanted. I had to trawl through a lot of retailers' websites before I found any that would do it. Then a friend told me about UKShoppingWorldwide, and I took a look at it. I was sceptical at first, but the site is just what I was looking for. No more searching through websites that don't ship abroad! I just go to the department that interests me, and I have a selection of retailers to choose from. It's great!"
Another problem that many British Expats face is sending gifts to their friends and family back in the UK. The customs duty can add to the original cost of the gift, not to mention the shipping costs, if you send an item from Overseas. Sending an item that is gift-wrapped is extremely difficult as it is likely to be opened by the customs staff before it reaches its destination. UKShoppingWorldwide has come up with the perfect solution, with their Cards & Gifts Service. Rachelle Font explains, "We've also added a Cards & Gifts Services section listing UK Companies which will send cards & gift wrapped presents to your UK friends & family." The service makes sending a gift to someone in the UK much simpler, and far cheaper.
Whether you are looking for goods from your favourite UK high street store, want to send a gift to your family back in the UK, or you just want to have a taste of home, UKShoppingWorldwide makes it easy to find. From old fashioned sweets, to high street fashion, to your favourite football team's merchandise; the site has links for all types of retailers. You can quickly access websites for retailers who are more than happy to ship the goods to you, no matter where you are in the world. It may be true that 'There's no place like home', but UKShoppingWorldwide can help you to overcome your yearning for your favourite items from 'back home'.
So spread the word; the British (retailers) are coming!
