Burrows Walk, Derby, Derbyshire DE1 2PL
A brilliant new shoe shop which has arose in Derby is Deichman shoes, but don’t be put off by the ridiculously european name, like a lot of people must have been. They sell high quality shoes such as Nike and Caterpillar.
There is a huge (and quite cheap) selection of shoes and bags throughout the store and the shoes are set out into specific sections: women’s, men’s and children’s.
The variety in this shop is brilliant and i have never seen this brand of store anywhere else. The shoes which are usually branded with big names, copies of branded shoes at cheap prices or essentials are more than fairly priced and the quality is pretty good.
It can be quite difficult to reach a pair of shoes if they are on the top shelf for example and you have to ask a member of staff to help you.
The staff are really nice and helpful and all seem to be women. They also like a chat too.
If you’re looking for some cheap shoes or any shoes in general, i recommend looking in here, you will more than likely find something appealing to you.

Jack and Jones is on the top shopping floor next to the food courts and escalators and is attached to Vero Moda (a womens clothing shop).
Jack & Jones is a menswear shop that stocks essentials and also quite fashionable and trendy clothing which makes a statement. The set out of the store is quite open and uncluttered and it is easy to look around.
I think that the fashion clothing in this shop has become less daring over the space of a year and now they seem to just sell clothing that they know will sell.
The staff in here are quite helpful and friendly. You need help finding the english prices on the tags because there are lots and lots of countries on it. A while ago, staff used to come straight up to you upon walking in which felt quite intimidating yet very helpful if you actually need help. Now, they aren’t so bad.
The prices are quite reasonable on some products and on others they are a bit expensive. Always worth a look though.

The best gadget shop in the area has definitely got to be Red 5 which is located in the westfield centre on the bottom floor opposite sports world.
This shop is always busy yet i am sure that very few people actually purchase something in this store. They sell very good novelty items which could be useful or just look pretty awesome.
The shop has toys/gadgets placed on show which you can play with yet i do feel that if you play with too long, the staff come along and ask for help, which i feel intimidates people and so they leave slightly embarrassed.
The stock is in glass cabinets and cases scattered amongst the shop and everything is presented in a good and clean way which seems quite futuristic.
The shop does get quite busy and this might be because it is small and very popular.
I recommend anyone to visit, especially if you are looking for a techy/funny gift.
83 Victoria Centre, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire NG1 3QE
This sports shop/boutique is on the second floor of the victoria centre, closer to the back near the Disney store etc.
I really love the appearance of this shop and the way that everything is set out. It is one of the most aesthetically pleasing shops in the centre, in my opinion because it appeals to my interests and sells great brands.
One side of the store is just shoes and then at the back there is clothing which joins onto the other side of the store and so it is easy to walk around.
I do feel slightly intimidated in this store by both the staff and the usual customers because i wouldn’t say i was their typical customer because i like a range of styles and sometimes go in wearing cardigans etc.The staff are pretty helpful and friendly though.
Their sneaker range is brill and one day i would actually love to buy some from there but to be honest, i feel they are pretty expensive and so are a lot of the clothes.
The side with just sports apparel in has some interesting variations which are limited. I love that they sell artful dodger but they sell it at a stupid price. On the internet you can get it at a fraction of the price they sell it in there.
Overall, it is a shop i go in and look around at more than buy things from due to the prices.

I actually don’t like this Forbidden Planet store as much as the Derby one and this is due to the size of this one in comparison to the size of the Derby one.
This shop is very small, cramped and does not have as much stock as the Derby forbidden planet.
It is still a great store for all your comic, game, sci-fi and action figure needs. They seem to have a good selection and the prices are the same as the other forbidden planet (slightly expensive).
This forbidden planet also seems quite dark as well and does not have as many staff as the Derby store.
A great thing about this forbidden planet is that they do have some great events on, which i am told are very popular. They include signings, meetups and contests. The Derby forbidden planet does not get these kind of things which is a shame.
Albert Street, Derby, Derbyshire DE1 2DS
Forbidden planet is one of the biggest retailers of all things slightly geeky (or maybe a bit more than slightly geeky). The one is Derby is next to the bus station, in the centre and is very easy to get to.
The shop is quite a good size and everything is usually set out in a very tidy way and set out so you can easily find what you want: unless, like me, you find it difficult to see the difference between comics and when you are looking for a specific one it is very difficult.
The music played in this shop is alternative and so are the staff, and although they don’t hover around the shop, they seem friendly and helpful if you ask for something.
There is a huge range of games and it takes up one of the aisles. They also sell anime and magazines of the alternative nature. I really like this shop because you can spend an hour in their passing the time, oblivious.
The prices are quite high which is the biggest disadvantage of this shop.

This peacock store is in the centre of derby and is just before you go into the westfield centre. It is quite a big peacocks store and has 2 floors of clothes, which is pretty good.
The first floor is all women’s clothing, underwear and shoes, with some changing rooms and a big till.
The second floor is men’s and children’s clothing and is not as big as the women’s but is still quite good. There is one changing rooms upstairs.
There is a lift at the back of the store so you do not have to climb the stairs if you don’t want to.
The clothing is usually quite tidy eventhough it is cluttered due to the amount of stock.
A thing i really love about this peacocks store is the vintage/victorian wardrobes which they must have bought from an auction. They hang clothes in them and it makes the shop look more unique and less high streetish. I would honestly buy the wardrobes if they had them on sale…
The staff are quite friendly and young although i have noticed there aren’t usually many staff in the store: usually 3-4.
Unit 10 Institue Lane, Alfreton, Derbyshire DE55 7BQ
Alfreton Post Office.
This is located right in the centre of Alfreton and to say it is Alfreton’s main post office, it is pretty small. The size seems a little insufficient at times because the demand of the people in the town and so the queues can sometimes reach out of the door during peak times, especially during mornings.
The staff are really friendly and helpful and get to know the regulars to the post office and like to have a chat. This is great and gives a sense of friendliness.
The facilities this post office has is disabled access, photo booth, forms shelf and post box (obviously!)
123 High Street, Alfreton, Derbyshire DE55 7DP
This blockbuster is pretty good and a really good size. It is in the centre of Alfreton yet never seems to get busy or crowded at all.
The staff are very friendly and talkative and try to help you with your purchase / trade in. They are not intimidating at all and do not look over your shoulder, like other staff in other stores, maybe because there is nothing to steal…...
The prices in here are like those you would expect in any blockbuster and the stock levels of dvds, games etc. is usually quite good and you can usually rent them straight away.
I really like the screens which show the new films coming to dvd.
It is also great when they do ex-rental dvd sales which are brill and you can pick up some great titles for a few quid.
Overall, this is the premier rental shop in Alfreton.
36 High Street, Alfreton, Derbyshire DE55 7BL
This is one of the convenient, biggest and oldest stores in Alfreton. It was one of the first bigger branded stores which opened there.
This branch of boots is directly in the centre of Alfreton and sells most things a usual boots would and this store is also bigger than some of the surrounding boots stores in the cities.
I have to say though: The meal deal selection in this store is pretty poor and this is one of my favourite things about boots:the £2.99 meal deal, consisting of a sandwich/salad, snack and drink.
The refrigerator section in this store just doesn’t cut it and only has a small variety of sandwiches and snack whereas the bigger chains have much more adventurous sandwiches. The chilled food section also seems to be empty after midday and so the stock is obviously not enough to meet demand.
The staff, i have to say are really nice and friendly and are all women.
It can get quite busy in there, especially around the pharmacy section, but the rest of the shop is usually easy to get around.
I would say the majority of the products in this shop are for women and there is a whole make up / perfume counter.
