“Last time I bought a small birth­day card in Hall­mark card shop I didn’t look the price un­til I took it to the till, I was shock with price – 45 dirhams. I learn a les­son so when­ever I go back to the UK I buy cards in there be­cause it’s much much cheaper.”

“There will al­ways be peo­ple that can af­ford and are will­ing to pay high prices for ev­ery­thing in Dubai. As long as peo­ple buy then the prices will stay high.”

ETHEL MILNE

“It’s a busi­ness plan thing... the sales vol­umes in the UAE or Dubai are a frac­tion of the UK. Would be fool­ish to sell at the same price as UK to meet a uae based rev­enue tar­get.”
