The Newcastle store is the original store in the chain. The store has expanded since its launch in 1882 and now consists of several interconnected buildings with entrances onto Northumberland Street, Eldon Square, Monument Metro Station and Blackett Street. It specialises in a wide range of luxury products. The store is known locally for its extravagant Christmas window display, filled with detailed sets and sophisticated moving figures, which has appeared since 1971. The themes are taken mainly from fairy tales and children's stories. The figures move and are accompanied by music.
