I strongly admire the British Department Stores but here is some of the other ones that I might be interested:

De Bijenkorf, Amsterdam


Karstadt Department Store, Berlin, the architects are from the state of Saxony.


Nordiska Kompaniet (NK), Stockholm

Perhaps, but I would say: more Second-Empire Style !!!! (and the interior was originally in Art-Nouveau Style)

Important note is that the Karstadt Departmentstore was bombed during the war.

A mall on the other hand, is right from the beginning a collection of independent shops. A mall can contain a department store and often does.

A department store is right from the beginning a single store with different departments. It can contain a small section which has small separate shops and often does.

You were wrong, and you are still arguing it. Nothing is going to change the fact that you were wrong. It is time now to learn.
so 50,000 sqm department store is small ?

No one said it was.

And just FYI some of the world's biggest department stores like Macys and Harrods are upwards of 90 000 sq m

I didn't realize Galleries Lafayette was a chain. I thought it was just one store.

Yeah, it's even a group (71 department stores, including affiliated ones + several supermarket chains such as Monoprix, Inno etc) : en.wikipedia.org/Galeries Lafayette Group

Outside metropolitan France, there are Galeries Lafayette stores in Fort de France (Martinique, French Caribbean), Berlin, New York (closed in 1994), Dubai and Casablanca.


Galeries Lafayette Berlin

Prince's Square is a shopping centre, not a department store

I put it on as it is not as conventional as a shopping mall and has a collective group of departments on each floor similar to a department store.

The one after it is House of Fraser, also in Glasgow.
