UK high street shops are some of the most well-known around the world – with many consumers deliberately seeking out UK shopping sites for both quality and style.

Achieving that quintessentially British look or buying from your favourite UK shopping sites needn’t come at a high price tag.

Here we provide a guide of the UK shopping sites that can give you the best of quality – at a discounted price. Items from any of the retailers listed can be shipped using our UK parcel forwarding service.

Fashion

Our customers love their labels when it comes to clothing but big brands can come with a big price tag. One British retailer leading the way on discount brand shopping is Brand Alley. Stocking women’s, men’s and kids fashion, along with homeware, beauty and sports, there really is something for everyone. There’s even an outlet section for even bigger discounts!

Shoes

Office is one of the UK’s most popular high street shops for shoes, stocking several major brands and seasonal styles, from sandals through to sneakers. But outside of the big summer and winter sales, you might find you’ll have to pay full price. However, savvy shoppers will be sure to check out Offcuts – the official Office online outlet. Although sizes may be more limited than in the main store, there’s no doubt that there are some great bargains to be found!

 

Homewares

One British brand that you can rely on for standout products at discount prices is Laura Ashley. As well as being known for its British style, Laura Ashley is also synonymous with offering quality products that last well and stand the test of time. Often with a site-wide discount available, it’s possible to achieve a stunning look for your home at a much more attainable price. Traditional sale times – such as Christmas and summer – usually see the biggest discounts. However, even at the time of publishing this blog (May 2019), there is a 30% discount available across all homeware items!

Particularly popular for furniture, home décor and home accessories, you’ll find everything from sofas and beds to mirrors and cushions. To provide the basis for a room’s look, Laura Ashley stock a range home decorating items including wallpapers and paints. Lighting is another popular category, with both traditional and contemporary looks to suit every theme.

As well as sophisticated looks for the home, Laura Ashley also stocks children’s home accessories and décor items, with looks ranging from pretty in pink to bold and fun.

Laura Ashley also has adult clothing collections, which again can often be found with good discounts across the whole range.

Tech

Finding discounts on new top-brand tech isn’t always easy. However, one way to get your hands on top names such as Apple or Samsung is to buy refurbished or second hand. One British retailer that has a good pre-owned tech department is Game. Pre-owned android tablets, android phones, iPhones and iPads can all be found online, alongside a wide range of gaming consoles and games. All products are rated in terms of their condition, so you know what to expect. 

If you’re a particular fan of Apple products, also check out Apple Refurbished. With everything from iPhones to Apple watches, products purchased from Apple’s Refurbished online store are backed by a one-year warranty and the Apple Certified Refurbished promise. And it isn’t just on old product lines – you can get all the latest models and releases. For example, you can buy a SIM-Free refurbished iPhone X 64GB in Space Grey for £769.00 – a saving of £130 on RRP.

Car parts

One website that our customers buy from time and time again is Car Parts 4 Less. With everything you would need for cars of almost every make and model, from engine parts to car brakes, batteries to bulbs, Car Parts 4 Less often has additional site wide discounts available. The offers available vary, but any discount code is usually well-displayed across the header strip of the website or on the homepage.

There’s also free mainland UK delivery on all orders. So enter your forward2me UK shipping address, and away you go!
