Debenhams was founded in London, in the year 1778 and became one of the most famous brands in Ireland and the UK, with its nearly 170 stores (Portsmouth, Oxford, Nottingham, Manchester, Croydon, Canterbury, Sofia, Prague, Dubai, Bucharest, etc.). Some of the most important names are Jasper Conran, John Rocha and Betty Jackson, but you can also find international brands. An interesting thing is that you can buy online using a simple, yet efficient mobile application.
Fortnum & Mason is one of the most beautiful shops based in the middle of Mayfair, where you can enjoy five-star restaurants, a celebrated tea shop and an award-winning wine bar. Owing to the high quality items, it has become one of the British symbols in the last 100 years. In addition to this, it has unique departments and products. Even the Queen and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge made an official visit in 2012. Unfortunately, its fame has a negative side, as well. From 2010 onwards several PETA demonstrations have been held outside the store.
Fenwick was created by John James Fenwick in the year 1846. If the initial headquarter was in Newcastle upon Tyne, nowadays you can find shops in London (in Bond Street and Brent Cross), Leicester, Tunbridge Wells, Kingston upon Thames, Bracknell and many other locations. The company’s owner is now Mark Fenwick. In 2012, the business was valued at £452 million. Christmas is a perfect occasion to go shop in the Newcastle store, as there is a special window display. The most known is the one from 2011, created especially for the 40th anniversary.
Harrods, an initial tea and grocer merchant, managed to create an international brand, known for its luxurious products and first-class services. Today, there are more than 300 departments, where you can buy the finest range of products, like clothing, electronics, jewellery, bridal trousseau, toys, health and beauty items, packaged gifts, home appliances, furniture, etc. If you need a small break from all the shopping, there are plenty of restaurants and other premier places. However, their dress code is very strict and you cannot enter while wearing flip flops, Bermuda shorts or other sorts of items.
The counting does not stop here. There are many other department stores, very loved by the wide public. You will also be thrilled to shop at John Lewis, Harvey Nichols, House of Fraser, Marks & Spencer, Liberty and Selfridges. They all have great discounts in certain periods of the year and people come from around the world to shop in London. This is a very important economic factor that also brings another positive light on the British lifestyle.
