It was Black Friday and I was in New York City. And there’s only one thing more I had to do before I call it a day, shopping!! After an early dinner at Eataly we took a cab straight to Uniqlo on 34th street.
My two cousins have never heard of Uniqlo because they live in Virginia so I introduced them to the wonders of one of my favorite Japanese stores in Hong Kong.
Did you know that shopping for clothes and shoes in New York is tax free for any item that costs below $55? For items above $55 up to $110 only 4.375% sales tax will be charged. That’s why the clothes I bought in Uniqlo were much cheaper than in Hong Kong.
Another trivia: Uniqlo is finally opening a branch in Manila at the Mall of Asia in June 2012. Yehey!!!
Armed with heavy bags we went to Macy’s next for a quick browse.
Whew that was a long and tiring day but I was really happy with my first day in New York City.
