Shopping in Glasgow

What are the items that I should bring with me because they’re not available (or are too expensive)?

This depends on the country you are coming from. Please be aware there are restrictions on foodstuffs brought into the UK, so you are advised against importing such items.

Will anyone have particular trouble finding clothes that fit?

No, the UK's shopping allows for a variety of shapes and sizes. If you are looking for clothes or shoes, sizing will vary depending on which stores you visit and which brands you purchase.

What grocery stores do expats in Glasgow shop at?

ASDA, Sainsburys and Tesco.

Where can other household items (such as cleaning materials and home furnishings) be found?

At the supermarkets mentioned above and specialist stores for home furnishings such as John Lewis or Home Base.

What are factors that might affect my shopping habits in Glasgow?

Beware of parking restrictions while you're shopping. Otherwise, you will find there is a great deal of choice for shopping in the UK and in Glasgow – with department stores, a wide range of specialist stores and 'high street' shops for fashion.
