"Bargain hunting" Department stores Tip by HYWL

Department stores, London: 91 reviews and 103 photos

Despite what you may think, Selfridges have fantastic bargains during the sales, especially right at the end of the sale season (end of Jan and end of July) where you can get up to 75% off. For example, I managed to get Full Circle men's t-shirts for 6 each (normally 30) and khakis for 16 (normally 70) for my brother. A Versace suit that normally cost 500 was around 150 and the classic Prada trainers went for 69. The men's department is a better shopping experience than women's, I think because there aren't as many men doing the shopping and therefore there are a variety of sizes and display tables and racks are tidy as they would normally be.
