High Street Shopping

Remember these tips:

  • Price comparison is essential. Check the prices of the shops on line before entering the stores.
  • Decide on a price limit before you go shopping. What is the most you will pay?
  • Do research before you shop. Find out what is included in the price for a particular item.
  • Check to make sure the on line retailers have a good reputation for both products and services.
  • Think quality rather than quantity. Select fabrics that are of a good quality. Choose silks, rayon and linens..
  • Seek basic pieces and colors in simple styles. Decide on your basic colors, and get a few basic pieces in these hues. Start by buying a skirt, a pair of trousers and a shirt.
  • Use color to effect. Add a top to your basic trouser/skirt combination, and get another top with accents in the same shade.
  • Look for items that have been marked down.
  • Don’t be afraid to negotiate. Let the salesperson know that you can get it cheaper at another store.
  • If you are not satisfied, walk away. You can always try somewhere

A cornucopia of shopping choices awaits on High Street, but before you go to the boutiques, designer outlets, niche fashion houses and well-known department stores, don’t forget-price comparison is important. Check prices of the items on line.
