Lithuanians Spend 3.2M Euros in Poland, a 2% Yearly Increase 

Lithuanians, lured by lower prices, boosted their spending in Poland to 3.2 million euros, marking a 2% increase from the previous year, especially on school supplies and essentials.


Lithuanians are flocking to Poland in August for back-to-school shopping, drawn by significantly lower prices on school supplies, clothing, and other items., enticed by significantly lower prices than in their home country. While Lithuanian stores are stocked for the new school year, Polish prices are more appealing. Facebook is filled with discussions about the best deals across the border. The price differences are evident: a backpack that costs 160 euros in Lithuania is priced at only 60 euros in Poland. But it’s not just school supplies; Lithuanians also purchase household items, construction materials, and food. Arūnas Vizickas from pricer.lt notes that this is an annual trend. Moreover, some food products in Poland are up to 50% cheaper. Data from Šiaulių bankas shows that Lithuanians are spending more in Poland than in previous years, primarily because of the attractive prices. According to the bank’s data, Lithuanians spent a total of 3.2 million euros in Poland, representing a 2% increase compared to the previous year. This rising trend is attributed to inflation and price hikes in Lithuania, prompting residents to seek bargains abroad.
