Nigerians Are The third Biggest Spenders In The UK After The Middle East Arabs and Chinese   Leave a comment


Nigerians accounted for four percent of shopping in the United
Kingdom in February, spending an average of 628 pounds per
transaction.

The Nigerian share of UK’s spending may on the surface sound
insignificant, but it has shot Nigerians ahead of Russians.
The Nigerians according to latest statistics by Global Blue were the
third biggest spenders after the Middle East Arabs and Chinese.
Russians now occupy the fourth place, though they also account for an average of four percent of UK shopping.
Russian spending in British shops fell by 17 percent last month
compared to February 2013, according to tax-free shopping statistics
out today. Spending
by Nigerians however declined by 8 percent in the month under
review.
Visitors from Russia spent an average £669 ($1,103, 800 euros) per
transaction, according to Global Blue, seeing them overtaken in third
place by those from Nigeria compared to 12 months ago.
Spending by Russian visitors was up 16 percent for the year in 2013
but fell in February 2014.
