Back in the not-too-distant past, people looking for the latest fashion, electronics, gadgets or gifts were required to shower, dress and brave cold winds and irritated fellow shoppers to find what they were looking for. Children flipped through toy store catalogs like doe-eyed automatons, leaving them conspicuously open to certain pages in the hope that the catalog would somehow accompany their parents to the mall. Queues everywhere, from the Car Park up to the Checkout and back home. It was a nasty, brutish time.
Help would arrive in the late 1960's when computer scientists at the U.S. Department of Defense created ARPANET -- the predecessor of the Internet. We didn't know it at the time, but shopping would never be the same again. We didn't have to go the store anymore! Instead, companies opened virtual stores online. Consumers could make their purchases day or night, respectably clothed or even in their pajamas.
The internet is a fabulous shopping tool. You can shop without the pressure from salespeople, compare prices from several retailers, and purchase products from the comfort of your own home. Today you do not have to go to the mall, buy a gift and go to the post office to send your gift, no to mention you have to make sure the item is properly packaged. However, which online store accepts foreign credit cards and has an English version of its website? Will they ship to a country other than their 'real' store is located?
We searched the internet to find all these stores for your convenience. As from today you will save time and money sending holiday and Christmas gifts and buy personal items worldwide in stores located many flight hours away. We try to keep the information we provide as accurate as possible so please let us know if the information is not actual or correct. Help others by leaving a comment about an online store en share your experiences. You will also find the latest news about these stores, their discount codes and latest fashion. Do you know a store that should be listed on this website, just tell us!
