Yes, 120 euro. The rent must be higher. The ties are all made in Naples.
120 Euro, at these days exchange is about 160 Bucks. Dont forget to get a receipt for the VAT and have them fill out that form and you get some $ back.
The store in Naples doesn't have a VAT refund program but if you ask them they will take off 10 euros per tie. I'm not sure about the store in Milan.
I;ll have to give that a try. I have typically been too slopy about VAT when shoping in Europe.
Can they legally refuse to fill out the forms if they are collecting that money? Dont be sloppy. Its really easy to get the $ back other than the fact that you have to show them that you are taking it out of the country, i.e. it has to go in your carry on. With ties thats not a big deal. Other clothing Items , (shoes, handbags, Suits, etc. ) can get to be a pain.
