Anyone looking to buy electrical goods such as washing machines or fridges should stay away from Wrexham, North Wales, according to a new report.
A survey carried out by online comparison site Kelkoo has come up with a list of the cheapest and most expensive places to shop in Britain. The firm bought 200 items across seven categories, from 10 retailers in a dozen locations around the UK.
When it came to electrical goods such as domestic appliances, London was the place to go. Goods bought in this category were almost £300 cheaper in London compared to the UK average.
Kelkoo’s electrical goods bought in Wrexham, were £152 more expensive than the UK average. The result is a £445 disparity between Wrexham and London.
Kelkoo marketing director, Chris Simpson, said: "Whilst we’re not telling consumers in these locations to stop shopping in the local area, we would always encourage consumers to compare prices both online and offline before they make a decision, particularly on big ticket items."
