Shopping in Liverpool is a great experience as most of the shops are located near the main streets in Williamson Square. However, there are a couple of very good side streets which house the more unusual boutiques and the shops unique to Liverpool as well. The Liverpudlians are extremely style-conscious and also very big on brand names. It is therefore natural to find most high-end shops having at least one outlet in the city. The Cavern Designer centre in Mathew Square is a great place to find good deals on popular clothing brands. The shopping centre sells kids’ clothes, jewellery, and everything else and brings the big names together, the most prominent shop being the Vivienne Westwood boutique. The shopping centres in Clayton Square and St. Johns shopping centre are also worth a visit, and just outside Liverpool is one of Europe’s largest designer outlets, Cheshire Oaks. The Albert Dock also offers very trendy shops and has everything from clothing to furniture stores. If you need something different, you will need to head for Chinatown. Every Sunday they have a large Chinese market there that sells everything from cooking pots to fresh meat sausages.
