Hello Julie and welcome to BE!

Have a wander over to the Canada forum here: http://britishexpats.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=56
If you need any advice on settling in and how to do stuff, want to see if there are any meetups near you or just want a good whinge then go ahead

All the best
P

There's a Calgary in Texas, and obviously Calgary, Canada. Not sure if there's any others

Default Re: Shopping .... sad but true

Thanks for the welcome everyone. Ok so I know this isn't the most challenging topic but 7 weeks in I'm feeling disorientated about shopping. (Especially since my mail forward sent me an M&S Autumn catalogue with nostalgic piccy's of shopping at home). So I'm in need of friendly advice about where to buy my women's winter clothes in Calgary (for those who asked which Calgary it's the Canadian one!).

I used to shop for smart/business casual stuff and then relaxing weekend stuff ranging from the very cheap (Peacocks and Primark) to the more department store (Beales, Debenhams, M&S) through to independent boutique and high end worn before style shops. I'm going insane without them. I would love to find the same range of shops (if I can) in Calgary. Not really sure where to start.

I know that when it gets to minus 30 I won't give a damn what shops I went to but as I feel homesick right now you'd be doing me a therapeutic as well as practical favour, if you had any tips.

Thanks in advance.

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.

Rosemary
