I am learning where things are in the great city of Aberdeen. I have found a lovely website that lists the registered farmer's markets in all of Scotland. Go to: www.Scottishfarmersmarkets.co.uk/ and there is one in Aberdeen.
Apparently there are three main shopping centers that boast main stores called:
John Lewis, Marks and Spencer, and Debenhams
Also there is Sainsbury's which is a superstore of, I am assuming, super things like food and accessories.
In Aberdeen City: Union Street and George Street are major shopping streets and Thistle and Castle Streets have many boutiques.
So there you go...a place to start looking for the American equivalents to Costco, Safeway, Raley's, and hopefully Target-ish or Walmart stores that will feel faintly familiar when we arrive.
