Shopping in London
London has a lot of 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
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
