Shopping in London
London has many large department stores, which sell everything: shoes and shirts, paper and perfume, fur coats and frying pans. The most expensive department store is Harrods in Knightsbridge. You can buy almost anything in Harrods, and you know you are getting the best. Twice a year, in January and july, Harrods has a “sale”. Some things are almost half price, and there are thousands of bargains. On the first days of the sale the shop is very crowded.
The smartest and most expensive shops are in Knightsbridge, but more people come to Oxford Street, London’s most popular shopping center. The street is more than a mile long. There are several big department stores in Oxford Street. The best known are Selfridges, John Lewis and D. H. Evans.
Oxford Street has the most shops, but in some ways King’s Road in Chelsea is more fun. This is where fashionable young Londoners buy their clothes in the many small “boutiques”.
Marks and Spenser is a very well – known department store selling clothes, food and other goods for home. Their clothes are generally considered to be of good quality and at reasonable prices, but not include the most modern and most extreme fashions.
There are several big street markets in London, and many small ones. Some markets open only one day a week. Go to the Portobello Road on Saturday, or to Petticoat Lane on Sunday. Covent Garden market is open every day. Come here for antiques, old clothes, hand – made jewellery and many other special things.
