Hi there,

 Are there any stores in the UK that kind of have everything for your home like Bed Bath and Beyond?  I really miss my one stop shopping!  And what about office supplies like Staples?  There actually seem to be a few Staples around but is there another store that's more pre-dominant in the UK for those sort of things?

Thank you!

I don't know about bed Bath and Beyond - it seems a lot of the bigger shops have departments for home furnishings, etc., but I've not seen a store dedicated to this stuff. Homebase is the closest thing I can think of, but they also carry furniture and DIY.

As far as office supplies go, Office Depot is here as well as Staples.

There is a place in Cambridge that is called Home Store and More.

It seems almost exactly like a B,B&B but when I tried to look up their website it seems like they are only in Ireland and they have a different logo so I am not sure it is part of that chain at all.

I know they are somehow connected to Argos, but why doesn't it have a website?  The whole thing is odd.

Is this the one in Cambridge, bookgrl? It looks great! Unfortunately there are only four locations (Cambridge, Harlow, Cheltenham and Aylesbury), none near me.  Sad

Well that IS it.  How did I miss that?  I googled it, but my mind must have been somewhere else.

It is pretty good, I got an Angel Food cake pan there and a lot of other little things.

I haven't been to one, but from the way my co-worker talks about it I think it is.   Smiley

Another place that:
1) Looks really great
2) I've never heard of
3) Is nowhere near me

Sunderland and Carlisle are your closest.

We were there on Saturday and, with bad traffic, it took us 3+ hours. The return trip was closer to 2 1/2, but still it's not really close enough for shopping.
