in any new town is always fun – but it’s even more fun when you know you can
shop at reduced Tax Free prices! Although technically part of EU member state,
Denmark, the Faroes are not part of the European Union which means you can shop
tax free. Just look for the sticker in the shop window, get your tax free
cheque from the sales assistant, and cash it in when you leave the Faroes.
Couldn’t be simpler. So, whether it’s one of those Faroese designer sweaters
you’ve seen on the TV or perhaps some locally made handicraft, or, indeed,
anything that just happens to take your fancy, poking around the shops in the
centre of Tórshavn or in the SMS shopping
centre is a fun way to spend an afternoon. What will you buy?
