Bargain hunting Shopping across the border

The Swiss are in a buying frenzy – but not in Switzerland.

For many Swiss shops close to the borders with EU countries these are hard times. Thanks to the low Euro exchange rate their clients are crossing the border to Italy, France and Germany to buy just about anything, from food, shoes and even homes. (SF/TSR/TSI/swissinfo.ch)
