It’s sales time, and traders bank on the big-spenders!

THE Sales season began this week, with high hopes that shoppers will continue to empty their pockets for bargains.

Recent sales’ periods have picked up, and traders expect to see a further increase in spending – but not necessarily by the island’s residents.

Gustavo Matos, Trade secretary of the Canary Islands’ Government, anticipates that foreign visitors will be more responsible for bumping-up sales figures than the slow exit from the recession.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
