With over 1,500 shops, Glasgow is a shopper's paradise,
recognised as the second largest retail centre in the UK and home
to the best shopping experience outside London's West End.
The biggest brands and major retailers can be found in Glasgow's
Style Mile - the square in the very centre of Glasgow which houses
an extraordinary concentration of shops. There's a great
selection of outlets in Glasgow's Style Mile with malls,
independent boutiques, designer stores, and one off-speciality
shops including: Buchanan Galleries, Buchanan
Quarter, St. Enoch Centre, House of
Fraser, and Princes Square.
"Boasting the UK's largest retail phalanx outside
London, Glasgow is a shopaholic's paradise. The 'Style Mile'
around Buchanan St, Argyle St and Merchant City is a
fashion hub, while the West End has quirkier,
more bohemian shopping options."
