This is one of the big department stores on Oxford Street.
London isn't just about clothes shopping. Consumer durables are available in abundance.
John Lewis has probably the best choice of televisions.
For example:
Toshiba 26WLT66 (16:9 26 inch LCD digital, made in UK) £649 (includes 5-year guarantee).
Toshiba 32WLT66 (16:9 32 inch LCD digital, made in UK) £795 (including 5-year guarantee).
...Prices correct at Dec.12th, 2006.

What to buy: Central London's main shopping area is the 'West End'.
Oxford Street has most of the 'chain stores', discount clothing stores & some department stores, e.g. Selfridges & Debenhams.
Regent Street is slightly more exclusive (e.g Dickins & Jones department store).
Piccadilly has smaller/esoteric/more unusual shops.
Bond Street has top-notch shops like Chanel.
Tottenham Court Road & Edgware Road has specialist electrical/computer/photography shops.

Harvey Nichols is a department store in High Street, Kensington, on the western fringe of the west end, southwest of Hyde Park & Kensington Gardens (High Street Kensington tube).
Harrods is an upmarket department store in Knightsbridge, south of Hyde Park (Knightsbridge Tube Station).
