F is for Fenwick

Fenwick is a large department store in Newcastle.  When I first went to it in December 2009, I saw the big window display of the Nativity scene.  I was pleasantly surprised to see the Christmas story in a public place, along with a large, popular window display that had a line around the block.  That’s a tradition we lost in the States a long time ago.

At the Discovery Museum we saw a lot of old carrier bags, dress patterns and pictures from when the store first opened.  I love that the city has so much history in it.  That’s something we just don’t find a lot in Florida.

Fenwick (founded 1882, Newcastle upon Tyne) is an independent chain of high-end department stores in the United Kingdom.

The group has its headquarters at the flagship Fenwick department store in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne, one of the largest department stores in the UK.
