British Retailers

Many famous British retail names are represented in the Los Angeles area. Most of these are
in the fashion and luxury goods businesses, in which Britain excels. Asprey, Graff, Burberry,
Turnbull and Asser, Smythson and Alfred Dunhill are on Rodeo Drive. Stella McCartney,
Alice Temperley, Paul Smith, Jimmy Choo, Alexander McQueen and Karen Millen are on
Melrose. Zandra Rhodes, another legendary British designer, lives in Southern California.
Iconic British cars such as Bentley and Jaguar are best sellers in California. Other British
retailers include new arrival Tesco (trading in California as “Fresh and Easy Neighborhood
Markets”), WH Smith, Body Shop and Boots. BritWeek 2008 featured a “BritWalk” around
many of the British retail establishments in LA and Orange County.’
