Shopping China Imports

Shopping China Imports is a domestic retail company based in Paraguay with department store outlets located in the towns on the borders with Brazil. The Firm has two outlets in Paraguay, one in Bolivia and the other in Uruguay, they sell a wide range of products including gifts, liquors, perfumes and cosmetics.

These outlets tend to cater for Brazilian visitors who cross the border seeking the best prices because they can buy with duty-free discounts. The English word 'shopping' is as widely known in Latin America as the Spanish or Portuguese 'compras', so this company has a strong brand name. Prices for consumer products, such as televisions, cellphones and tablet computers are much higher in Brazil than the surrounding countries, so crossing the border to shop is very popular. Other nationalities can also shop in the stores, but they cannot receive tax-free benefits if shopping at a store in their home country, duty-free goods must be exported.
