@nuva: Do you mean department stores that are both in the UK and the US?  I know whenever I’m in the UK I have direct orders from my mother to purchase items from her at John Lewis, Selfridges and Lewis’ (although Lewis’ is in Liverpool only) and they are just like Macy’s!  Also, I know amazon.com or .co.uk have online registries….

John Lewis is a good one, great customer service. They have a John Lewis in most larger cities and towns, there is also House of Fraser and Debenhams maybe even Marks and Spencer… though I can’t remember how much electricals they do anymore. I think Next has started doing electricals (online purchase only). Those are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head Department store wise.

Just electric type superstores that are common everywhere are Curry’s and Comet. Alot of the supermarkets also do electricals (Online) and Boots the chemist (also online only). All the shops I have mentioned can be found and bought from online.

Of cause there are loads of online only shops… Best to google.

Phew… hope that was helpful and not just things you already knew.

Wish you the best for your move to this weird little Island!

Yes I’d go with John Lewis, they have a very wide range, very good quality at all levels and generally offer their own extra year of cover free on expensive/electrical items.

But Denenhams and House of Fraser are very similar. We’re considering a little here a little there with all of them, our families have very varied incomes, we thought that way everyone would feel like they had been able to join in.

But I say again if you go for one place I cannot recommend JL enough.
