Its no mystery right now that several of the major world currencies are at all time highs against the US Dollar. Right now, one euro can buy one dollar and forty four cents (at the Spot Rate). The Greenback has been sliding for quite some time against many of the major currencies and you can see the impact by just looking at some of the international retailers expanding in major cities across the United States. Some of the retailers popping up in urban centers include Zara, H&M, Mexx, Reiss, Mango, etc.

Now is a great time to expand in the United States if you are financing your business in Euros, Pounds, Loonies (Canadian Dollars), or even Francs. With exchange rates continuing to work in the favor of the retailers, I expect to see a great expansion of international concepts.
