Subject: Westfield Shopping Mall newly opened in West London

Written By: Philip Eno on 10/30/08 at 7:26 am

I just got back for visiting Westfield

London's largest shopping mall, a 265-store, glass-roofed center owned by Westfield Group and Commerzbank AG, opens today, just in time for Britain's first recession in 17 years.

The 1.7 billion-pound ($2.8 billion) Westfield London mall in the White City section of the U.K. capital has tenants such as Marks & Spencer and House of Fraser and luxury retailers including Tiffany & Co. and Louis Vuitton, along with 47 restaurants and a 70-person concierge and valet staff.

To assist in attracting shoppers there are special events on stage.

Introduced by a BBC Presenter, the name I did not catch

I had to leave early for it was too crowded with shoppers and I have to consider my back.

But on the way back home...

I met London Mayor (ex-politician and tv celeb) Boris Johnson.

I will be going back when it is less busier.

My daughter drove me crazy the other week singing this.  She seems to have forgotten it now.

LOL now I know who that blonde haired politician is - saw him on the news tonight and thought "what a bizarre looking man".  Now I am thinking we saw his face on telly a lot when London was fighting for the Olympics ????

My London facebook friends are madly posting pics from their day at the mall today too.

I find it quite funny that such a big deal is being made about a "little mall". Westfield is a Perth family company (that is now apparently taking over the world) - so down here we are quite use to them building disgusting monstrosities that take you 3 days to get in and out of.  Personally I avoid them like the plague! I like shopping in places that I dont need a GPS for !!!

;D

There is a Westfield where we used to live in Indiana.  It was fairly large, but ugly, both inside and out (very dingy inside).  I've only been there maybe two or three times, but that's also because I'm not a fan of malls.  The only mall we go to a lot is the Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, but that's just to hit the sushi buffet and the bubble tea shop after shopping at IKEA. :D

Although I rarely venture into the Westfield shopping centres, I think they're great as a one-stop-shop destination  :)

A visit is threaten for the family today, but as it is it's weekend of being open, I think I it will be rather a bit on the busy side.

We have a Westfield Shopping Center in Brandon, FL, just outside of Tampa, and I remember that Sarah Ferguson (the REAL Fergie) came to cut the ribbon.
I went, but never got a close look at her.
