Shopping in Cyprus

Postby texkourgan » Fri Jul 05, 2013 3:21 pm

Hello and welcome to EasyExpat.com!

Shopping is an Olympic sport for some people, while others just need tips on where to find common goods in Cyprus. Do you like to shop? What is your favorite part of shopping in Cyprus? What is the worst part? Where are your favorite shopping malls or boutiques?

What should new expats know about finding products in Cyprus? What did you find confusing to find when you moved aboard? Is there a special item you are still looking for?

Where is the best place to shop for groceries? Do you shop online or ship items from abroad?

Thank you for sharing your experience!

For those of you looking for answers to this question, we just published a guide to Cyprus (http://www.easyexpat.com/en/guides/cyprus/nicosia.htm) which includes helpful info on shopping. Find the relevant info here: http://www.easyexpat.com/en/guides/cypr ... opping.htm

For example,

Cyprus is relatively inexpensive for a European country, as the capital Nicosia was recently ranked 88th out of 100 cities in Europe surveyed when it comes to cost of living. While prices for accommodation, education and healthcare are quite low, everyday consumer goods cost about the same as throughout the rest of Europe....

Both tourists and locals love the locally made embroidered products available for sale in Cyprus, especially the handmade Lefkaritika/Lefkara lace. Cyprus is also known for its beautifully made silverware, textiles, and pottery, so be sure to pick up some accents for your house in Cypriot shops.
