I can walk around and around town looking for clothes and find nothing, but walk into Debenhams and I usually find what I want. If they don't have my size they will check other stores and either get the right size in or tell me where I can pick up from. They have a great choice of clothing for. Men, women, children and babies. Their shoe section is heaven, what a lovely way to spend an afternoon. The cosmetic and perfume area at the front of the store is vast and has a lot of choice. Benefit make up counter as well. Home department also has a brilliant choice of towels, bedding etc etc. lovely shop to browse around and there's a coffee shop to recharge your batteries in
I always used to hate department stores. But I have been converted over the years.
If truth be told I would give this store a 4.5 stars if I could but in this case I have rounded up.
Since I have been back in the Uk for my visit I have been 4 times to this store. The first time I was just browsing for baby clothes and toys, second and forth time it was to use the baby change facility and third time was for a makeover at the Benefit counter.
On the second visit I went to the baby changing facility as the store I had planned to visit had suffered a flood in their room. Of course the toilets, baby change facility and childrens clothes and toys are all on the top floor, this has to be the main thing which would tip them to a 4.5 star review instead of 5 given that the lift/elevator is quite slow and there is no way you can get up that far with the use of stairs!
The baby changing facilities are great, smelly bin/trash can aside of course (but that is a given wherever there are changing facilities). In this one there is a toilet and sink so you can go relieve yourself at the same time and if you have toddlers/small children there are mini ones for them too in there!
There is a great selection of baby and childrens clothes available here, ladies clothing, mens clothing, accessories, homeware and of course a café! Debenhams are quite possibly the best of department stores in regards to their selection and availability within towns. Not many towns are without a Debenhams and that is one of the reasons why when we got married almost 5 years ago we had a wedding list with them.
In addition to the registry availability you will find there is a personal shopper service available. I can spend hours in this store, or would if my little lady would let me! She is a shopper in training!
