DUTY FREE STORES

Clark was designated a Special Economic Zone.  Duty Free stores were set up for use by International Travelers.  And, to help the impoverished refugees of the Mt. Pinatubo eruptions in the Angeles, all refugees could get a monthly allowance.  Of course, everyone that applied was considered a refugee.  These stores multiplied like crazy until some of the loop holes were finally closed around 2001 or 2002.  Many have now gone out of business, but some still provide us with USA canned goods and products we cannot get elsewhere in the Philippines.
