Shopping in London
London has many large department stores, which sell everything: shoes, paper and perfume, fur courts 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 (скидки). But on the first days of the sale the shop is very crowded. Some people stand and wait all night so they can be first in the shop when it opens.
The smartest and most expensive shops are in Knightsbridge, but more people come to Oxford Street, London’s most popular shopping centre. 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 many small “boutiques”.
You can buy what you like in the big shops, but the small markets have a lot to offer too. There are several big street markets in London, and many small ones. Some markets are open only one day a week. Go to the Portobello on Saturday, or to Petticoat Lane on Sunday. Covent Garden market is open every day. Come here for antiques, old clothes, hand-made jewelry and many other things.
