Shopping online uk: Online Shopping in the UK | The Best Online Stores in the UK

E-commerce in the United Kingdom (UK) – statistics & facts

Online retail in the UK

Retail sector, where the UK leads the way in Europe, was responsible for around eight percent of e-commerce sales across all industries. In the retail sector alone, online sales constituted 19.4 percent of all retail in 2019, and is forecast to reach higher levels in the next years due likely to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. In 2020, internet retail sales had grown by only 46.1 percent, the fastest rate recorded in the past decade. Online retailing had particular weight in textile and clothing stores, with the most recent governmental figures showing over one-fourth of retail sales coming from online.

The online shopping landscape of the UK is getting more enriched with more and more consumers choosing to make purchases online. In 2020, as high as 87 percent of UK households made online purchases within the preceding 12 months, making this the highest online purchase penetration rate in the country in the past 11 years. Clothing and sports goods were especially popular purchases made online.

Shopping habits

More detailed analyses of online shopping behavior of consumers reveal that what drives shoppers to online retail channels is a mix of various motivations. A survey conducted in 2020 found out that prices and choices were the biggest two factors. Another study on the payment patterns of online shoppers revealed that while conventional methods such as credit cards or debit cards still held a higher share, shoppers also accommodated online payment systems such as PayPal, or even digital wallets such as Google, Apple, and Amazon. Furthermore, up to one-third of UK consumers preferred to shop online and postpone the actual payment. Buy Now Pay Later options were more popular for purchases of casual wear and beauty products.

Where to shop

Brands you love, delivered to you

They chose us

  • Borderlinx is the perfect way to buy multiple items off online shops if you live abroad, because you only pay shipping once. It is so great because they let you “buffer” items into one big order. Also, you’re not bound to just Amazon.

    Simon Altmeyer, Germany, 02/2016

  • This is the first time I shopped from abroad. So I was worried a bit. But since Borderlix provides step by step how to shop and ship, there was no problem–even though the last item I bought was a special gift which I sent to a different country than where I am now. I was really pleased with Borderlinx services.

    Reza Dwiaji, Indonesia, 02/2016

  • Borderlinx has been 100% reliable in all my shipments. Shipping is fast, and all my items arrived in good condition. I also love the DHL tracking feature, which allows me to estimate the arrival of my items.

The UK’s 30 best fashion boutiques | Fashion

Modern Society, Shoreditch, London

One of Redchurch Street’s coolest offerings, Modern Society fuses fashion, lifestyle, art and food in effortless style. It stays ahead of the curve when it comes to the latest brands and was first to introduce London to the covetable coats of Sandy Liang, By Far footwear and Salt Surf. With a clientele evenly split between male and female, genderless labels are popular – including its own line of T-shirts. Owner Nazifa Movsoumova says: “We are in a prime location, near Shoreditch House and Jasper Conran’s Boundary hotel, so we see a lot of tourists at the weekend. Weekdays are when our regulars return to the café and to check out the new drops. We’ve also just launched crystals, so if you’re looking for some guidance or a good omen, we’ve got an amazing array!”
themodernsociety.com; @modern_society_london

Browns Fashion, Mayfair

Established in 1970 as one of the first multi-brand boutiques in the UK, Brown’s has a reputation as a fashion talent scout that is second to none. Founder Joan Burstein employed Manolo Blahnik and Osman Yousefzada, and discovered Alexander McQueen and John Galliano. Now owned by online giant Farfetch, the original South Molton Street store has powerful backing and a big digital engine, as well as a second store, Browns East. Cutting edge and bang on trend are its milieu. Current faves are the labels Ruslan Baginskiy and Wandler. Look out for spangly disco swimwear from French label Oséree and Leslie Amon and micro sunglasses from Roberi & Fraud.
brownsfashion.com

MatchesFashion, Marylebone

It may have an online behemoth behind it (having been sold for a reported £400m), but the MatchesFashion Marylebone boutique is still both a local and destination store for the stylish shopper. As much drop-in fashion clinic as shop, customers can enjoy a calendar of events throughout the year. This year’s summer celebrations start this month when guests can mingle with the designers behind womenswear vacation brands, Horror Vacui, Álvaro, Gioia and Wiggy Kit and shop the looks. Recommended for the shopper – both male and female – who wants to be first in line for the most stylish new brands.
matchesfashion.com; @matchesfashion

KJ’s Laundry, Marylebone

In pretty Marylebone Lane, this 12-year-old New York-feel store owned by Kate Allden and Jane Ellis offers designer labels on the cooler side of feminine bohemia. “Our customers are confident working women who come to us for the special pieces in their wardrobe that they can’t find on the high street,” says Ellis. Look out for pretty printed shirts by Paris brand Soeur, minimalist frills from Ulla Johnson and this season’s new-to-the-store labels Birds of Paradis and Natalie Martin.

The Place, Mayfair

‘We put a lot of emphasis on service, and atmosphere and the assortment of brands’: Simon Burstein. Photograph: Pal Hansen/The Observer

Veteran retailer Simon Burstein, son of the founders of Browns Fashion, has just opened a new multi-brand store next to Claridge’s. As you’d expect from Bernstein’s pedigree, there’s a prestigious mix of new and interesting designer labels, particularly embroidered designs by Alice Archer (formerly of Dries Van Noten), Sofie D’Hoore’s chic European minimalism and Dodo Bar Or’s colourful boho cotton dresses. For menswear, bright and jolly shirts from Leathersmith of London work well alongside. Simon says: “We’ve been established on Connaught Street with a men’s and women’s store for some time, but last month we had the opportunity to open up on Brook Street, opposite Claridges, which is a great location, although I’m only too aware that there’s a lot of competition out there. We put a lot of emphasis on service, and atmosphere and the assortment of brands are relatively unknown to people. Whether it’s a young brand or a well-established label that hasn’t been that visible – like Sophie D’Hoore, the Belgian designer, who is great for a certain kind of woman. The customer loves what she does. The most important brand for me is Alice Archer, the designer I’ve been backing since the days of Browns, where I was CEO. It’s luxurious, it’s special and it really comes with something very different.”

18montrose, King’s Cross

With branches in Glasgow and Nottingham, as well as London’s King’s Cross, this casual and streetwear boutique dresses men (and some women) across the nation. Best-selling brands include casual’s favourite Stone Island, alongside footwear by Adidas and Nike – this season’s Raf Simon’s Replicant trainer is flying out. Look out for new-to-the-fold designer Heron Preston, with his millennial take on jersey trackies, hoodies and graphic T-shirts.
18montrose.com; @18montrose

Couverture & The Garbstore, Notting Hill

These two stores make for one bright retail experience. On the ground floor and mezzanine it’s the Couverture take on womenswear, home and lifestyle. Downstairs is Garbstore’s menswear. Both have beautiful, unusual buys that will stand out, even if the price points can be a stretch. Favourite labels for women include New York’s Rachel Comey and London’s LF Markey. Men should make a beeline for watches by Techne and the English Difference, the Garbstore’s latest own line.
couvertureandthegarbstore.com

Wavey Garms, Peckham

Set up by former chef Andres Branco as a Facebook page to trade hard-to-find 80s and 90s streetwear to a millennial audience whose parents probably had the originals, Wavey Garms (Urban Dictionary translation: cool clothes) has been described as “changing the face of British fashion”. Its success has led to collaborations with global players such as Nike, as well as diversification into styling, creative direction and its very own coffee-table book. If you want to buy the garms in person, you can now do so at its recently opened store in Peckham, south London.
waveygarms.com; @waveygarms

Dukes Cupboard, Soho

Dreaming of 90s Stussy? Dukes Cupboard is the vintage designer and sportswear store for you. Having started back in 2012 as a market stall for secondhand Polo by Ralph Lauren on Soho’s Brewer Street, success has led it into the warmth of a physical store around the corner at Green’s Court. Lacoste, Polo, Nike, Stone Island and Dolce & Gabbana all feature large and if you can’t get there, they have a strong online website and Instagram presence with 28.2k followers.
dukescupboard.com; @dukescupboard

Other/shop, Soho

Looking for a fashion-forward take on unisex and workwear? Other/shop could be the store for you. A selection of considered labels including the excellent Studio Nicholson (mens and womens), Story MFG, London-based fashion favourite Peter Jensen and the street-influenced Aries Arise provide an interesting blend, alongside the store’s own brand Other, an androgynous collection of utility fashion, designed by the founders and produced and fabric-sourced in the UK.
other-shop.com; @othershop london

Our Daily Edit, Brighton

‘We always wanted our shop to be welcoming and inspiring’: Mark and Ella at Our Daily Edit. Photograph: Alex Lake/The Observer

Former TV producers Ella Wells and Marc Lewis are the husband and wife team behind this relaxed and friendly store. Mingling fashion with lifestyle and art, bestsellers for women include the ever popular Ganni, LF Markey and Sideline, who are based nearby in Lewes. Male customers come back for Portuguese Flannel, Levi’s Made & Crafted and Wood Wood. Ella says: “Marc and I always wanted to be a store that felt welcoming and inspiring with no obligation to buy. We try to take on brands that people haven’t heard about. We do have some bigger labels, but we like niche labels. We like to support local designers and artists. We work with them on collaborations and hope to find a new audience through them.”
ourdailyedit.com; @ourdailyedit

Object Style, Manchester

A Scandi-style boutique in Manchester’s trendy Chorlton? What took them so long? Object Style is the whole shebang – a finely curated collection of clothes for men and women and mid-century homewear, put together by husband and wife team Alex and Rachael Otterwell. Womenswear has a utility feel in muted palettes (modelled online by chic owner Rachael) and accessorised with minimalist plated jewellery. Menswear comprises chunky leather footwear and shaggy knitwear. Buy a scented candle for the complete hygge experience.
objectstyle.co.uk; @object_style

Hervia Bazaar, Manchester

This designer luxury store does a good line in cutting-edge labels, such as Thom Browne, Rick Owens and Gosha Rubchinskiy. Streetwear style brands, such as Comme des Garçons line Play, as well as Kanye West’s Yeezy and sneaker brand collaborations are also a favourite, while Hervia’s retail partnership with Y-3 also allows it the largest online selection of the Adidas brand in Britain.
hervia.com; @herviaofficial

Cricket, Liverpool

Compared to the height of Coleen Rooney fever, Cricket enjoys less national media attention than it once did, but no less commercial success. In designer-conscious Liverpool, where teenagers will fork out £500 for a pair of prom shoes, the fashion stakes are high and owner Justine Mills (good pals with Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful, don’t you know) always provides. It was the first UK buyer of Balenciaga, which can’t currently be kept in store long enough, alongside catwalk looks from Celine, Valentino, Chloé, Versace and contemporary brands, such as Off-White. Menswear also performs well and the kidswear downstairs allows a frenzy of mini-me styling on the shop floor.
cricket-fashion.com; @cricketfashion

Resident Store, Frome, Somerset

A lifestyle boutique with clothes, rather than a fashion store, Resident brings together a carefully considered blend of garments that work well in the Scandi-inspired interiors that are so all-of-us right now. Look out for the soothing colour palettes of Selected Femme and Selected Homme, easy shirting by Form & Thread and minimalist weatherproof coats by Rains.
residentstore.co.uk; @resident_store

Square, Bath

A Bath stalwart for more than three decades, Square has recently rehoused itself in a building where Mary Shelley wrote part of Frankenstein. The style continues at this classic boutique with bright mid-priced dresses by Rixo in the window and drawing in the crowds. Also currently selling well are Golden Goose trainers, the Isabel Marant diffusion line Etoile, sensuous silky pieces by Italian label Forte Forte and knitwear staples by 360 Cashmere. A new website will be coming next season.
@square_bath

Found, Bath

There’s an eclectic mix of apparel, accessories, jewellery and stationery at Found, a store that seeks out the lesser seen. A strong emphasis on British brands sees contemporary womenswear label Sideline (good jumpsuits), sitting alongside the always excellent YMC and colourful knitwear by Hades. For men, this season Hong Kong label Made by Scrub joins the likes of Universal Works and Penfield. Fashion types will hone in on the cool earrings by Machete, too.

Black White Denim, Wilmslow, Cheshire

‘My shop has become a bit of an extension of my home’: Joanne Davies of Black White Denim. Photograph: Fabio De Paola/The Observer

Catering for a swish Cheshire crowd, Black White Denim provides a trendy and bright take on daywear and looks to dress up for evening. Favourite labels include dresses by Rixo, trainers from Air & Grace, shirting by Rails and Bella Freud, and John Smedley knitwear. The ingeniously entitled menswear department, Bloke White Denim, is a recent addition and carries many of the same brands as womenswear. Owner Jo Davies says: “There’s so much anonymity now in online shopping that I think our customers really like the whole relationship element of the purchase in our store. My shop has become a bit of an extension of my home. It’s a bit like having the front door open, the kettle and a load of clothes people want to try on.”
blackwhitedenim.com; @blackwhitedenim

Old Town, Holt, Norfolk

A unique offering, Old Town calls itself a micro-clothing company and produces and sells early-20th-century-inspired workwear in a contemporary style from its shop and workshop in Holt. Think high-waisted moleskin men’s trousers (£150) and apron dresses for women (£88). They make about 70 garments a week, using British cotton, wool and linen where possible. Without marketing, Old Town has developed a cult following, particularly among creatives who see the look as an alternative uniform.
old-town.co.uk; @oldtownengland

Bernard Boutique, Esher, Surrey

This family-owned store may have been around for yonks, but it consistently delivers a fresh take on the season’s best fashion for women. For this season, bright printed pieces and swimsuits from Ganni, the Danish label much loved by the fashion crowd, stand out, as well as pointy glamorous mules by the British Malone Souliers. They’re one of the few stockists of the ultra-cool Japanese label Sacai and also stock No 21, Chloé and Moncler for its well-heeled locals. Always worth a visit.
bernardboutique.com; @bernardboutique

The Hambledon, Winchester

A Georgian-fronted building, with rooms that date back to Tudor and Norman times, this buzzy, creative destination store houses three rooms of womenswear, menswear in the basement, and homewares, stationery and whatever else they fancy. Popular labels for women include Bellerose, Stine Goya, coats by Shrimps and summerwear by Masscob. Menswear favourites include the harder to find 6876 and Adsum. People travel far and wide for the Hambledon experience. But even if you can’t get there, the relaunched website now also offers its extensive range of fashion.
thehambledon.com; @thehambledon

The Dressing Room, St Albans, Hertfordshire

“A point of difference, that’s what people want when they shop at independents,” says Deryane Tadd, who opened her award-winning womenswear boutique 13 years ago. Stocking around 90 brands, including the currently popular ethical trainer brand Veja, she offers exclusives with midpriced Brit brands, such as Lily and Lionel, Pyrus and Mercy Delta, as well as a styling service that can be done online or in store. Their YouTube styling videos are also worth checking out for those who can’t get to Herts.
the-dressingroom.com; @thedrstalbans

Tribeca, Brighton

Laura Starbuck has been offering the style-savvy Brighton woman – from 30 to 80-somethings – just what she wants for 15 years from her chic and understated store. One of the first to bring Isabel Marant to Britain, she still sells the now mega French brand, along with Acne, jeans by Agolde and cool leather bags by Marant’s husband, Jérôme Dreyfuss. Look out for the quintessentially Parisian label Polder arriving in the next few months.

Envoy of Belfast, Belfast

‘We do well because we sell a lot of harder-to-find brands’: Ruth Spence of Envoy of Belfast. Photograph: Darren Kidd/Press Eye

A worthy past winner of Ireland’s best boutique, this understated store has quite simply one of the most tasteful buys in these isles. It’s almost impossible to find pieces by Paul Harnden but Envoy has them, alongside a great edit of Dries Van Noten and the Japanese brand Engineered Garments, and knitwear from Ireland and Scotland by & Daughter. Trickers shoes and New Balance trainers complete the look. Owner Ruth Spence says: “We’ve been open for 10 years and I think we do well because we sell a lot of harder-to-find brands. People are looking for garments with longevity, and because we’ve worked with clients for years we’re able to say: ‘Oh, this would work with the piece that’s already in your wardrobe!’”

Flannels, Cardiff

A luxury fashion offering for men, women and kids, the Cardiff branch of Flannels boasts labels such as Gucci, Valentino, Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, Giuseppe Zanotti, Lanvin and Moncler. New for this season is Off-White menswear, from Virgil Abloh, the designer recently scooped up by Louis Vuitton. With a personal shopping service and a custom-made offering on certain lines, this is an upscale retail experience. Flannels also has 18 stores in the UK and opens another in Westfield London in July.
flannels.com; @flannelswoman; @flannelsman

Jules B Jesmond, Newcastle

One of the northeast’s fashion gems for the last 30-plus years, Jules B stocks mid-priced and designer labels on the glam side, including denim by Victoria Victoria Beckham and cult sunglasses by Le Specs, with new additions from Gigi x Tommy Hilfiger. Menswear includes Barbour International, Paul Smith and Hartford basics. Two more stores are also in Yarm and Kendal.
julesb.co.uk; @julesb_online

Morgan Clare, Harrogate

Twenty years as one of Yorkshire’s premium designer stores is no mean feat. The newly upgraded store is all dark wood floors and crisp white walls, with an evolving blend of brands – most recently Ancient Greek Sandals, Preen Line and Robert Rodriguez, joining dressing-up favourites Stella McCartney and Peter Pilotto and denim from Paige and J Brand. Weekly buyers’ picks and product updates feature on its lively Instagram feed. There’s also a branch of the store at 36 The Grove, Ilkley.

How to order goods from the UK from the new year? – Accounting News

The Tax and Customs Board (Maksu-ja Tolliamet, hereinafter referred to as MTA) reminds that from 1 January a value added tax on parcels over € 22 ordered from the UK, as well as customs duty on parcels over € 150.

Due to the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union, it is necessary to take into account the new rules when ordering parcels in the new year. This means the following: if the value of the goods ordered by mail is more than 22 euros, the customer must declare the goods at customs and pay 20% VAT. If the value of the ordered goods exceeds 150 euros, then in addition to the value added tax, a customs duty is paid, the rate of which depends on the specific goods.

It is most convenient to declare parcels electronically in the e-MTA, and in order to submit a customs declaration, you need a notification sent by a courier company or Eesti Post, as well as a document confirming the value of the goods, such as an invoice, payment order or order.

“Online shopping in the UK is very popular among Estonian shoppers, often hosting post-holiday campaigns with large markdowns, but this year you need to be very careful when ordering goods and not leave your order at the end of the year,” said the head of customs formalities MTA Kully Kurvits.

Please note the following: if the order was placed in 2020, but the package is sent from the UK in 2021, then customs duties and value added tax will be added to it.”For example, if a package worth 30 euros was ordered on December 31, but it is sent from the UK on January 2, 2021, then VAT will be added to it. Therefore, we recommend ordering your purchases early,” added Kurvits.

The shipping or ordering of certain items is subject to restrictions or special authorization requirements, so you should check the MTA rules before placing an order. For example, ordering medicines from online stores is prohibited.In addition, you need to be careful when ordering food supplements, so before placing your order, you should make sure that a food supplement from another country is not a medicinal product in Estonia.

From 1 January, it is necessary to declare gifts sent from a private person residing in the UK to a private person residing in Estonia, the value of which exceeds 45 euros, in the same way as for all countries outside the European Union.

When sending goods from Estonia to the UK, they must be declared at customs if their value exceeds 1000 euros.

More information about the changes that will occur with the end of the transition period can be found on the MTA website: https://www.emta.ee/et/brexit-eraisikud.

What you need to know about gifts and purchases from the UK / Article

So, now, buying something in the British online store and receiving the corresponding order from there, with a high probability will have to pay to the state: VAT – if the cost of the goods exceeds 22 euros, and if it is more than 150 euros, then in addition to VAT, customs tax.

“If you can prove with documents that the goods were made in the UK, then there is a chance to get a zero rate, but there is already serious documentation, and this is not so easy for individuals,” said Irena Knoka.

In the case of gifts from individuals from the UK, the threshold for the value after which the tax appears is higher – 45 euros. But, unlike commercial parcels, beyond this threshold, all taxes appear at once: VAT, customs and excise (if a relative or friend sent excise goods – for example, whiskey).

“And travelers should take into account the fact that when they arrive by plane, and the value of goods in their luggage exceeds 430 euros, they will also have to pay both VAT and customs duty. Well, if they carry Scotch whiskey, then there is also an excise tax, ”the SRS representative warned.

She explained that the postal service – Latvijas pasts or courier mail (for example, DHL) will notify the recipient of the need to fill out a customs declaration and pay taxes. And she noted that all customs declarations related to postal items go through the SRS risk analysis system, there is a database on the average prices of many goods, so that at the very early stage the customs determines whether additional control is needed for a particular parcel.

The British emptied supermarket shelves in panic

Over the weekend, British supermarkets faced an influx of shoppers leaving empty shelves.One in six Britons says they “cannot buy basic food,” and one in three is already starting to stock up on Christmas supplies ahead of the winter shortage. Photographs in the media show empty sections of some supermarkets across the UK that are no longer stocked with meat, fruit and frozen food.

On Saturday morning, UK store shelves were empty and millions of shoppers say they have been unable to buy staple foods for the past two weeks as the UK supply chain crisis continues.

According to the Daily Mail, the photos show empty shelves in supermarket departments where meat products, fruits and frozen products were sold out, and on the eve of the holidays, customers were seen pushing carts with purchased rolls of toilet paper and bottles of water.

New data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show that roughly one in six Britons has been unable to buy basic food items in the past two weeks, the latest sign of panic shopping in the UK.

90,057 A survey of 1,000 consumers by The Grocer found that two-thirds of shoppers are worried and “very concerned” about potential food and beverage shortages ahead of Christmas.

To ensure that lunch is ready by December 25th, hundreds of thousands of shoppers have already booked their Christmas grocery delivery, and one in three shoppers are starting to stock up now.

Top UK statesmen have said they are considering getting soldiers to drive trucks for Christmas to prevent food shortages, while Britain is plagued by a series of crises with chaotic gasoline price surges and truck shortages.

Amid fears of food shortages in the coming months and shopping anxiety leading to empty supermarket shelves, one in six adults has been unable to buy staple foods in the past two weeks. According to the Office for National Statistics, about 17% of adults said they were unable to purchase such items due to a lack of them. Nearly a quarter of adults said the same for nonessential foods. The statistical office came to this conclusion after analyzing the responses of 3,326 adults from September 22 to October 3 in the survey “Opinions and lifestyles.”That said, a total of 57 percent of people said that everything they need can still be bought.

One in seven people in the UK could not buy fuel, as fears of a shortage of gasoline and difficulties in hiring truck drivers led drivers to queue for hours for fuel, and gas stations were forced to close due to lack of supplies.

90,057 Six in 10 people said their shopping experience was different, while 43 percent said there was less variety and 14 percent had to run through more stores to find what they needed.

A fifth of the British said that the items they needed were out of stock, but they could find a replacement, and a fifth said they could not find a replacement.

Amid fears that empty shelves in supermarkets will continue and worsen as Christmas approaches, hundreds of thousands of panicked shoppers have already booked places for delivery for the holiday season.

Supermarkets are increasing orders for turkey and other necessities to cope with earlier-than-usual hype.

Retailers warn of empty shelves and delays in gifts due to gaps in the global supply chain and lack of truck drivers amid fears of a “winter of discontent” gripping the UK.

According to economists, over the past month, every tenth enterprise has raised prices due to rising inflation, which has not yet reached its peak.

NielsenIQ Analyst Mike Watkins told The Grocer: “Shoppers tend to postpone most of their Christmas grocery purchases until the end of November, but obviously this year we see demand shifting from late November to October due to concerns about which consumers have read and heard, and turkeys are a great example. “

UK Holidays Will Boost Gadget Shopping

According to a survey conducted back in July, the British will make 64% more purchases using smartphones by the autumn-winter holidays than last year.

According to DigitalResearch , which surveyed two thousand people, 96% of respondents plan to buy goods on the Internet during the fall-winter holidays.At least 48% are going to make half of all planned purchases online.

In Britain, mobile shopping (smartphones and tablets) has been growing like an avalanche in recent years. For comparison, in 2010 it accounted for only 0.4% of all Internet sales. In the second quarter of this year, it reached 23%. At the same time, mobile traffic already accounts for 34% of all traffic.

Approximately 25% of respondents indicated that they plan to be most active in terms of shopping closer to Christmas.In their opinion, this is the most appropriate time to shop because of the large number of discounts and special offers from sellers, as well as a wider range than usual. At the same time, the respondents highlight another advantage of online shopping – the absence of queues, which traditionally appear in regular stores by Christmas.

As for buyers in North America, their sentiments coincide with those in Britain: Americans also plan to become more active in November-December.Therefore, they are going to visit fewer “real” stores. Offline retailing in North America is expected to grow 2.4% by the holiday season, down from the 3% growth seen last year, according to ShopperTrak.

As for Russia, it is quite in line with the western trend. Mobile shopping in the country is growing quite actively. According to experts, by 2017, the volume of trade in this segment may grow from the current $ 104 million to $ 416 million.And the example of last year shows that Russians are ready to spend more and more on organizing their holidays.And the Internet plays a key role here.

Interesting English traditions and customs in Great Britain

There are many peoples and cultures in the world, but you definitely will not confuse the English with anyone! Although they are considered to be cold-blooded, reserved and prim, in fact, they are friendly, agreeable and very fond of sports. An interesting combination, isn’t it? So let’s find out more about the customs, traditions and way of life in England, because when studying English, it is important to understand how this nation lives and breathes.

The British – who are they, what are they?

The British are naturally polite and never tire of saying “Please” and “Thank you”. They are disciplined and will not talk loudly on the street. They don’t push to get a seat on the bus or train and queue up at the bus stop. The British do not shake hands when they meet. They try not to show emotions in public, even in tragic circumstances. They do not lose their composure and remain optimistic in difficult situations.

The British are a nation of couch potatoes . They say: “My home is my castle” and do not like neighbors to interfere in their lives. The British prefer small single-family houses. The fireplace is the heart of the English home. While people from other countries go to cafes or cocktail bars in the evenings, the British prefer to gather in the living room and sit by the fire, discussing the events of the past day. In many houses, you can still find fireplaces today, sometimes with columns on the sides and an upper shelf where there is a clock, a mirror or family photos.

The British love gardening and love to talk about it. They can discuss cucumber growing methods or talk about their unique flower garden, so different from the rest. Sometimes the British grow plants in a box outside the kitchen window or in their garden. They are very fond of flowers.

The British are also very fond of animals. The total population contains about five million dogs, about the same number of cats, three million parrots, other birds and aquarium fish – as well as a million exotic animals such as reptiles.There are specialty stores in the UK that sell dog food, clothing and other items. There are dog hair salons, gyms and cemeteries. In Britain, Christmas cards and birthday greetings are sent on behalf of animals. Pet owners can buy expensive collars, wool coats, lace dresses, pajamas and so on. There are special hotels for pets at the airports. The British believe that they are the only nation that cares so much about animals.

On weekends, those who live in large cities like to go out into the countryside. Every Englishman loves to spend time in a country house with a garden and rose bushes by the porch – in the fresh air, away from the hustle and bustle, in peace and quiet.

Those who stay at home try to do all the things that they did not manage to do in a week. Someone goes shopping on Saturday morning, someone is engaged in housekeeping – washing and cleaning. Someone attends sporting events or plays sports themselves.

Saturday night is a good time for parties, dancing, going to the cinema or theater.

On Sunday, after breakfast, the British work in the garden, walk the dog, visit the pub. On Sundays, it is customary to invite friends and relatives for tea.

British food traditions

There are also some traditions regarding food. English cuisine is solid, simple and nutritious. The British prefer a hearty breakfast. It can consist of oatmeal, scrambled eggs and bacon, fried fish, toast with jam, tea or coffee.They prefer cold toasts. Typically, breakfast is the same day in and day out.

Tea is an integral part of British life, is like potatoes or bread. There is even a saying: “Seven cups of tea will help you wake up, nine cups will help you fall asleep.”

A daily meal is called lunch. On weekdays, meat stews, fried fish, chops, liver, sausages, vegetables can be served. The British rarely eat rice and pasta. For dessert, apple pie or hot milk pudding is served.Sunday lunch is a special occasion. It is served with beef or lamb tenderloin with vegetables, and then a large pudding with custard. From 4 to 6 pm – tea time, which is called “5 o’clock”. At this time they drink tea with cakes or small sandwiches. In a sense, this is a whole ritual. All other things are postponed for the sake of tea drinking.

Dinner (usually after 6pm) is much like lunch, and in many families this is the last meal of the day. Sometimes it can be followed by “supper” – usually cocoa with a light snack of bread and cheese.

The British have a popular specialty known as “fish and chips” – fish and chips. It is best to buy it from a stadium tray and eat it right during a football match.

English culture is distinctive and rich in traditions that have passed through the centuries.
