The nearest good department store - they sell a huge variety of things and their "never knowingly undersold" price promise means you won't find it cheaper elsewhere...

"This stylish small-ish department store sells a little bit of everything. Their kitchen department is fabulous to find basics home items with a little bit of flair."

Almost as well known as Harrods - yet "Never knowingly undersold." If you find it cheaper they will give you the difference!AND owned by a co-operative. Brilliant, bargains and socially responsible!
