Shops in Leeds – The Cheap and The Dear

In a recent visit to Leeds, I was disappointed to see a growth in the number of bargain basement, everything for a pound shops, which always appear on the verge of closing down. Perhaps more sad, was the lack of real bookshops, with only Waterstones being a major bookshop left in the city centre


Mr Price!  Temporary sign to go with temporary business.

At the other extreme, we have Harvey Nichols and haute couture of the Victorian Arcade. I don’t think you would find many things in there for under a £1!

Nice Bike and Harvey Nichols.


The 99p shop has been bought by Poundshop and Poundland is doing well with many items below £1. A proper Trinity if ever there was one.

Fear not the new development at the bottom of the Headrow will have John Lewis as an anchor tenant – never knowingly under blogged.
