    Traditional department store in Portrush. Over the past few years they have tried to modernise which has greatly helped. They have a great gift department. Ladies clothes are a bit dated but you can pick up the odd bargain. There is a small shoe shop with a small selection of shoes. Lovely cafe for a coffee and snack. There is also a toy department where the kids can spend their holiday money!

    This is a old fashioned family run department store with lots of history. Founded, I believe in 1891 and can name Queen Victoria as one of its customers in years long gone by. I don't think she shopped there in person but is reputed to have ordered linens from the shop in the late 1890s, and the Prince of Wales carried on the tradition in 1903. The biggest order The White House ever took was for twenty-six suits for His Highness the Rajah of Pudukota in South India in the early part of the last century.
    I was amazed recently to see that The White House was still going strong and to keep in step with modern trends it stock lots of the top selling high street brands in men's, ladies and childrens clothes. Long may this tradition shop keep up the standards and ethics of a small local business.
