Spain’s department store colossus is both loved and hated, but successfully performs the main task of the department store, which is to offer most things to most people.
Designer fashions, their own low and medium-priced lines, enormous perfumery and make-up departments, leather goods in all price ranges, toys, children’s clothes, art materials, food and delicatessen, home furnishing devices, garden furniture, a tobacco department with humidors etc.
However, the best thing about El Corte Inglés is the service. The staff is always friendly and helpful, garments are shortened and taken in at no cost and without a murmur. And the customer has the unlimited right of return upon production of a receipt. This sells.
