Disadvantages: Too expensive
Harvey Nichols in Leeds is possibly one of the nicest shops in the whole city.
Apon arrival you get the door opened for you by the nicest old man in a suit and top hat. Great service already.
Then you walk in and there are handbags by great designers. They have all the Gucci, Prada and Louis Vitton but also some other brands that are a bit more quirky and interesting.
They have a great food hall and also a sushi resturant. Students can get 50% off here.
Theres a lovely cafe in the Victoria Quarter under a glass roof that is part of Harvey Nichols. The food is amazing and makes for a great lunch or afternoon tea. They do nice sandwiches with posh crisps and salad. The soup of the day is also very tasty. The service is great, quick and the other people sitting around you are all very pleasant.
All of the clothes in this department store are labelled. Its hard to find anything for under £20, even a belt or scarf. They do a great collection of ball dresses but most of them cost over £200, it was nice to try some of them on, the fit is amazing but its far too expensive.
At Christmas their window display is absolutely brilliant, they win awards for it and it really makes the high street a bit more upmarket.
This shop is mainly catered for people with a lot of money, with the high standard of customer service, they expect you to be buying a lot of stuff. If you cant afford the clothes I would really recommend the cafe just for a quick lunch in the afternoon.
Summary: I love window shopping
