Was in town today for the Chinese New Year celebrations which I took some great photos of. As I had my camera kit on me, I ventured over to Debenhams and Tesco's and took these shots:-
It's the 'layout' of the store that is taken from New York. Yes, the first one in the UK.Different stock I think, the first in the UK to have such I am lead to believe.
I don't think Eldon Square is the first.
"As New Yorkers get behind British fashions in the shape of Topshop, Liverpool ONE can
proudly announce that they will be the site of Topshop’s first Manhattan concept store in the
UK. The revamped Topshop in Keys Court in Liverpool ONE will be double its original store
size to 60,000 sq ft, offering customers the more exciting high-fashion ranges previously only
available to their Oxford Circus customer base surrounding their flagship London store."

I think most of the New York style improvements would be noticeable in the womens wear sections on mall level and 1st floor. Not perhaps so much in Topman located in the basement. I was in there yesterday, and I must say a ridiculous amount of stairs to climb back up to mall level without an up-escalator.I honestly didn't notice any particularly new/different clothes in Topman. It was certainly more spacious than the previous store and had a more modern design but that was about it.
Yeah its full of scum basically. :crazy2:Burn down the Black Garter I say (during trading hours hno: just kidding)! I really do think the people in those pubs are the sad face of an uncultured, grimy, unhealthy Newcastle that is dying out slowly but surely.
The post office was previously in the now closed Safeways supermarket, next to the Byker Metro, before opening on Shields Road.But can anyone remember who traded from those premises BEFORE the Post Office moved in their counter services from "over the road" on Heaton Road?
Food certainly is good and their shop designs are pretty funky and fresh, hence I had been telling everyone on the forum that it was not a run of the mill lunch place when I mentioned a few months back that someone I knew was opening one there
They had a queue out the door and half way across the road for most of their official public opening today and the staff from other food places nearby were all standing looking :lol:
Their strawberry millions milkshake **droooooool**:nuts:
went out in the toon on Sat afternoon and did a bit of browsing. Really hate that Hollister format now; you can barely move inside it and you can barely see anything in that ridiculous lighting. Am 36 tomorrow so maybe I'm getting too old for some stores
