El Core Inglés is located in different buildings in central Madrid near Puerto del Sol, and has stores in other Madrid locations. My favourite was the food shop which was open late and on holidays -- perfect as we were staying in a flat. The variety and quality of the food and wine was excellent. We visited frequently.

10% off if you show your US passport. I think the discount also applies if you live in an English speaking country. Brands they carry range from Calvin Klein to Pepe Jeans. If you're in the mood to shop, check it out. Although I'd much rather shop at a local shop for something unique that I can't find in the States.

I lived right down the street from this store. It offered a little bit of everything. All of the floors upstairs were just like a department store and then the basement is a grocery store. My favorite day to shop was Saturday because they would give out samples of everything, including wine and spirits. You could go to the store, do your shopping, and walk out feeling good.

El Corte Inglés S.A. (English: The English Cut as in tailor's cut) is Spain's only remaining department store chain, as well as owner of several associated businesses. The primary flagship store for the chain is located in Madrid at 79, Raimundo Fernández Villaverde Street. It encompasses several buildings and carries the most comprehensive collection of designers of any large store in Spain.
I briefly coaxed Gayle into one building of the Madrid Complex sometime during the evening before Día de la Hispanidad. El Corte Inglés was also close to the Hotel, so why not? I don't recall what I was looking for, but I remember the entire place to be packed with people. We walked and shopped around, but left relatively quickly. After all, we didn't come to Spain to spend too much time in a large equivalent of Macy's. And as Gayle and I later traveled through Bilboa, San Sebastian, Girona, or Barcelona, there was a El Corte Inglés around just in case we changed our mind.
