Went past the old Goodlife store today, now a shop advertising 2 t-shirts for £20 (or similar deal).

Selfridges own a site in Glasgow (Trongate IIRC) but not aware of any progress as far as actually putting a store in place.

Size? would offer nothing new that Hanon and Attic don't have.
Is Foot Locker not just another JD-ish sports shop?

Certainly agree with Union Square tho, other than Nando's Laughing out loud

there might be plans for a Fopp in the future, but probably not this year…

I'd say Aberdeen is pretty decent, probably the best shopping in Scotland (Although Glasgow and Edinburgh are shockingly bad for their size).

Aberdeen: Hanon, Attic, Kafka, Pure,
Glasgow: Urban Outfitters, Aspecto, Size?
Edinburgh: Xile, Goodstead, a poor Harvey Nichols
Dundee: Manifesto erm anything else? Ozzys?

Nice list PH Cool


While Edinburgh isn't great for shopping I wouldn't say it's shocking. Xile, Goodsteads, Focus, Urban Outfitters, Harvey Nichols, Jenners, HOF, Harvey Nichols and all the generic H+M's and footlockers are all good. Plus State of Mind just got a LVC and nike account I think and there's places like Corniche if that's your taste. Not great but still a decent variety.
