Where Sauchiehall and Buchanan Street meet, Buchanan Galleries provides a gleaming, modern showcase for over 80 famous name retailers - anchored by John Lewis. This department store, renowned for exemplary customer service and its never knowingly undersold price guarantee, has four floors filled with everything from fabulous fashion labels to covetable homewares.
A unique shopping experience in Buchanan Galleries is the Scottish Design Exchange (SDX), which sells affordable products, from fashion and furniture to paintings and candles, with 100% of the sales proceeds going directly to the artists, designers and craftspeople who created them.
But this huge mall is also home to a mesmerising mix, ranging from High Street fashion favourites such as Next, Warehouse and River Island, to the eye-catching jewellery of Swarovski and Thomas Sabo.
This is the place to explore the super-cool Californian vibe of Hollister or hot style from Spanish brand Mango. You'll also find iconic sportswear at Fred Perry, and cool performance gear at Trespass. And it's not just all about fashion, with Lakeland offering ideal home and kitchen solutions, The Whisky Shop providing an amazing array of Scotland's nation drink and bareMinerals, with its award winning makeup. So whatever you're looking for, and whatever your style, there's surely a store to suit you here.
Once the bags are full or if you need to refuel before continuing, then head for the second floor to the Street Food Hub and Bar for everything from tacos to panzerottos. Interspersed throughout the centre are also a range of quick pit stop foodie options, including Krispy Kreme and Mooboo Bubble Tea.
