It's alway fun to check out the department stores to compare them with the stores at home (don't you love it girls). Howells is similar to Macys in the U.S. After we browsed the womens' clothing we had lunch in their little cafe.
I understand Howells has gone through a renovation since I was there and now they even cut your hair.
What to buy: We only window shopped.
What to pay: Same prices as the US.
Directions: near the stadium -see map
