Manchester airport - sunglasses

Has anyone bought any sunglasses from Manchester airport?

Am looking to buy some for our trip to Orlando and want to know what sort of prices they are.

Thanks

I got a pair in boots, not at an airport but in town, quite nice. Maybe they sell them in the airport too?

2 years ago a friend bought some ran bans from duty free. Not sure how much but he seemed happy with the price. Sorry that's not much help

Not Manchester but Edinburgh, don't know if it's the same shop though. The Oakleys OH bought were £112, which was approximately 20% cheaper than they were in John Lewis.

Why don't you post this on the Manchester forum? You might get more responses.

Why not wait until you arrive in the US and buy then.

Better choice with better prices especially with $1.68 to the pound.

Don't expect any bargains on Ray Bans anywhere the brand doesn't come cheap

There are sunglass huts in the airports and the outlets but not particularly cheap

If you don't mind ordering online I buy Costa Del Mar, and wife gets Gucci from EJ's sunglasses. They ship for free and always have a 20% off coupon and no sales tax. You could have shipped to your hotel for you. Their current promo code Memor14 for 20% off.

I buy a new pair at least twice a year and have never found a better deal anywhere.

If you have a certain pair in mind, give them a call and ask the price. The shop is called Temptation and phone number in T1 is 0161 489 2031. I walked through there last week but didn't have time to look as I was stood in the security queue for over an hour and had to run to make the gate.

You can't walk 50 feet in Florida without finding some place that's selling sunglasses. You won't need them on the plane (and risk sitting on them or crushing them in your bag!) -- and they make a good souvenir!
