A lot of trademarks and brands are presented in Cyprus. In almost every city, one can find souvenir shops, jewellery shops, fur salons, and designer clothes stores.
In Limassol the main location for shopping lovers is the central avenue of the city – Makarios Avenue, on which the expensive international brands of shoes and clothing are presented. More affordable shops are located on Aneksartisias street in the old town; this is where one can find such widely appreciated brands as Zara, Mango, Topshop, Bershka and others.
In Nicosia, the central location for shopping is called Makarios Avenue; here and in the adjacent Stasikratius Street are exactly where one can find boutiques of famous brands.
In the resort towns, there are also plenty of stores, so if you wish you can enjoy shopping for brand clothing, shoes, and accessories there as well.
Despite the wide variety of the trademarks and brands available, the main interest of the consumers is usually drawn to the things that are part of the island’s traditional culture. First of all, that is qualitative jewellery, Cyprus wines, olive oils, and products of folk crafts, particularly Lefkara lace.
There are two periods of sales in Cyprus – first one officially begins after Christmas and lasts until March, and the second lasts from mid-July to mid-September. However, one may enjoy a good shopping all year round.
