Many of the American stores like Barnes & Noble, Forever 21, and Bloomingdales etc. have their stores and outlets in other countries too but they offer their goods at more expensive rates than they do in United States and if you buy them online then they also come cheap. It is simply because what’s sold in America has much lower import dues than things sold in other countries because of the United State’s market’s prominence. Other countries also have a lot of dues attached like VAT, custom duties, taxes etc. Moreover, online sellers don’t have to worry about the rent like the brick and mortar outlets do. Normally they need just the storage space, which is generally inexpensive in America.
So how can you do shopping from US while living abroad? Very simple, you can always enlist the help of an intermediary service in America which will procure the items which you want to buy from any of the US-based online reseller for example you can enlist the help of Parcel Xpress LLC.
