    69A Renshaw street: Good antique shop...in Liverpool ?

    by sourbugger Updated Apr 1, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Much better as a plastic doll- Doddy

    Liverpool would not normally strike you as a place to find a good antiques shop – but I can heartily recommend a place called 69A which rather confusingly is situated at 75 Renshaw Street.

    The place was a former drawing office to some kind of engineering firm, and some of the original fixtures, remain along with an impressive amount of natural light from the rooflights. The shop has an array of furniture, records, jewellery and clothes etc which are carefully displayed around this large emporium.

    Of particular interest is a cabinet at the front of the shop displaying specifically Liverpool-associated memorabilia. Much of it is connected with the Beatles, but also of other scouse stars such a Ken Dodd, or Cilla.

    Liverpool Football club Souvenir shop: Fit in with the locals....

    by sourbugger Updated Apr 1, 2014
    You will never walk alone - except in Everton

    Many visitors to the city are devoted followers of Liverpool FC (current company excepted) and so the desire to buy replica kits and the like is no doubt attractive.

    The main store is at the stadium, underneath the 'Kop' although there is also another large store near Clayton Square in the city centre(just ask a local)

    What to buy: Announcing Sourbugger's end of season Liverpool FC sale - whilst stocks last :

    Gerard Houllier's big book of management success.

    'How to look good in red' by Swarez

    'Speaking English proper like wot I duz' by Jamie Carragher

    What to pay: All very overpriced (including the above)

  • Dapper menswear: Shopping with genuine service for once

    by Enidhughes Written May 30, 2012

    Me and my husband visited this store while on holiday from new york , my husband was looking for a light rain jacket as he had left his t the airport no surprise !
    Well I have to say I have never met such genuine and happy staff who were asking questions about were we we're from and how we where enjoying our stay and took a really interest instead of just trying to make a sale to a couple of tourists which they would not see again

    These type of encounters with what you would call the locals really makes travelling worth while
    Good job Liverpool !!!

    What to buy: A really good range of men's clothing at a range of prices

    What to pay: £30 to £500

    Liverpool can boast some fantastic high street shopping. Check out the Liverpool ONE shopping complex in the city centre- Europe's largest city centre regeneration project. It houses 160 shops including the official stores of the two famous Liverpudlian football teams: Liverpool and Everton.
    While shopping here, be sure to visit the nearby shopping streets of Church Street and Paradise Street for more high street brand names.

    Westworld and around: Bold Street

    by King_Golo Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Looking up Bold Street

    Westworld and several shops in the immediate surrounding area are a mecca for shoppers. I never cared much for shopping until I went to New York last year - but since then, I'm not opposed to shopping anymore. So being in Liverpool in the beginning of March, my steps soon led me into the shops along Bold Street. Westworld is one of them where I bought some new t-shirts, but the others around are similarly worth visiting.

    What to buy: All the ones I visited had a large selection of rather crazy t-shirts by brands as of then unknown to me. Moreover, you'll find military style jeans, caps, 70's jackets and much more. In my opinion the ideal place to get your clothes for a hot club night!

    What to pay: There's a discount for students (10%) and when I was there also a general discount of 40%. This means that you pay roughly 10-15 quid per shirt.

    Grand Central: The coolest place to shop!

    by King_Golo Updated Jan 18, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Grand Central from the outside

    Grand Central kind of looks what it sounds like - it resembles a Victorian railway station, at least the entrance. I had no idea what I could expect when I entered the building out of sheer curiosity. A sign just behind the entrance read "50 shops" - and I was thrilled! This building and it's weird atmosphere could only be home to really cool shops...
    Well, so it is. On three floors, the weirdest stuff ranging from bowler hats to "Punk is not dead" shirts, from handbags consisting only of zippers (yup!) to feather boas, from 60's style flower dresses to second-hand bow-ties, is sold. You can get nearly everything here that is either useless or stylish or both. In several of the shops, the owners sew and tailor themselves so all products are unique. Others seem to be closed most time of the day but the owner is just next door for a chat and will pop up next to you if you get lost in thoughts how cool that weird hat just over there would look on your head at the next motto party... There are shopkeepers who smell like they smoked a joint a minute ago and others who are busy sewing little trousers that will make your toddler look like a clown. And in the middle of all of it, there's the coolest rasta I've ever met. Don't miss his shop (it's the one with the giant variety of crazy hats and scarfs on the lowest level called "Hatz B4U Asssk")!

    Btw, does anybody know what kind of place Grand Central was before it turned to be a shopping paradise? It looks like a nice place for a club, but I'm not sure if this goes along well with the old organ hanging on the wall... Any comments appreciated!

    What to buy: Everything that makes you look cool or cooler!

    What to pay: less than average, but probably not as little as you might expect

    Liverpool One: "Everything You Love"

    by Evenith666 Written Mar 24, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    1 more image

    Liverpool One is a new shopping and entertainment complex in Liverpool city center. It has more than 160 high street stores, independant boutiques, cafes and resteraunts. There is also a 14 screen Odeon Cinema, and above the comlex is the five acre Chavasse Park, claiming to be Liverpools answer to New Yorks Central Park. Many of the resteraunts in the terrace of the comples offer stunning views of the park and the Liverpool waterfront.
    The shops are also open untill 8pm on weekdays, as such Liverpool One offers the first late night shopping in the city.

    What to buy: The huge range of shops means that it will be difficult to come here and not buy anything, no matter what your interests.

    What to pay: It will be hard to come here and not spend anything, and you could easily spend a day in this complex alone browsing the shops, having something to eat, watching a film and then relaxing in the park.

    Liverpool 1: New shopping in the city centre

    by Britannia2 Updated Mar 15, 2009

    Liverpool 1
    3 more images

    Liverpool 1 is the city's newest shopping and residential development that has been built between the city centre and the Albert Dock. It has a cinema, a food court and a good mix of shops with something to suit everyone.
    There are retail giants here like John Lewis and Debenhams and then the national chains such as Superdrug but also interesting independent shops.
    The cinema is the Odeon and this has an amazing 14 screens. There are 20 cafes ( we ate at Pizzahut) and two hotels as well as underground parking and local buses stop outside. James Street and Central stations are close by for rail travellers.
    The walk down to the Albert Dock has been well planned and the gentle slope down is through landscaped gardens with a water feature.(see photo 2)

    The face of Liverpool is fast changing - there are now even more shops as the first phase of Liverpool One is now opened linking the waterside with the centre of the city. Modern new architecture amidst the old is blending quite well.

    Lewis's: Department Store

    by darkjedi Written Apr 27, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lewis’s was founded in 1856 by London-born entrepreneur David Lewis, who arrived in the city in 1839.

    The Beatles played on the roof of the store on November 28 1962, and a young Paul McCartney worked there as a temp during the 1950s. It became a regular meeting place for John Lennon and his then girlfriend Cynthia Powell who would gather by the famous naked man Jacob Epstein statue, Liverpool Resurgent.

    Lewis's, famous for Jacob Epstein's nude male statue, towering above the front entrance, is probably the most famous department store in Liverpool and is a well-known meeting place for courting couples.

    Labels such as Oasis, Kookai, Coast, Morgan, Warehouse and Principles are being joined by Vicky Martin, Betty Barclay, Jane Shilton, Ellie Grey and Radley.

    The 'statue exceedingly bare' is celebrated in the song 'In My Liverpool Home' made popular by The Spinners.

    This store is an associate store in the Forbidden Planet chain so you can expect to find much the same as in any other stores. Comics, books, models, posters, anime etc. all the usual stuff in vast quantities.

    several: Church Street and around

    by King_Golo Updated Mar 14, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Church Street on a normal day

    Church Street and around are Liverpool's main shopping streets. Here, you'll find the bigger and more well-known stores ranging from H&M to BH's. In between, other essential stuff (such as books) can be purchased as well...
    I bought two polo shirts somewhere on Church Street - the prices were reasonable.

    What to buy: Clothes

    What to pay: Compared with German prices, slightly above average. In contrast to the shops on Bold Street, I didn't see any student's discounts here (but perhaps you just have to ask...)

    Liverpool FC Club Store: When in Liverpool - pick a team!

    by gordonilla Updated Feb 24, 2008
    Liverpool FC Club Store

    I encountered this store quite by accident - however I did drop into see what was happening. It was busy and the shop had a real buzz to it. Many non residents were in the store; very few scouse accents to be heard.

    I suppose it could also be said for the Everton FC club store - however, I did not see that anywhere in the city centre. (perhaps I should have gone to specsavers?)

    What to buy: Club merchandise of course.
