The unlocals discount

While waiting for Vietnamese takeaway from First House Pho in Spence St (lookout for the kick on that XO sauce) KS stumbled accross an interesting advertisement just up the road at a sportswear & goods store.

Yes, after operational exercises downunder the US Blue Ridge is back in town. However, is this a good deal for our American visitors? The $AUD has touched $1.10 on the back of the incredibly dysfunctional political standoff in the US on debt ceilings. However as evidenced in the stress being experienced by our discretional retailers and given the price discrepancies between the two nations, it's likely that a US sailor would still be best advised to keep his money in his pocket until he gets home!
