Before I "blog it," most probably on Shiloh Musings, I'd like to ask your opinion. Please comment here if you have one.
As you know, I sell clothes in Yafiz, Sha'ar Binyamin. And as you also must know, there are many Arab customers. Basically, there are two different types of Arabs buying in the store. One group lives in Israel, or more accurately Eretz Yisrael, The Land of Israel and the other group of Arabs who shop in Yafiz are tourists or Arab businessmen. Some live in Jordan and others further away, like Europe and the United States.
I've given a lot of thought about it. The Arab customers are extremely polite and sometimes surprisingly enthusiastic, as if this is the treat of a lifetime. It's almost like the foreign tourists who are bussed to "outlet malls" in America. My gut feeling is that this is more than just a chance to find a financial bargain.
