Bed, toilet and anti-social shopping capitals of the UK

phone_pooFor Madchester fans, the de facto English second city can evoke memories of late nights, lager and a pioneering music scene. But Manchester is also the bed shopping capital of England, with a whopping two thirds (59%) of locals shopping from a sedentary position.

Across the Irish Sea, Belfast is known well as being known as the home of the Titanic and Game of Thrones. Today, Give as you Live is adding to the city’s fame with the sought-after ‘toilet shopping capital’ award, as one fifth (22%) of residents admit to a lavatorial purchase.

Back in England, York residents have earned their city the title of anti-social shopping capital of the UK, with 18% shopping online whilst dining or drinking out.

Steff Lewis added, “If you’re going to shop in bizarre situations, you should at least support UK charities at the same time to elevate that anti-social behaviour somewhat. Give as you Live is the only price comparison site where every purchase helps charity; so whether you’re buying lingerie on the loo or DVDs on a date, make sure you support a good cause while you’re doing it.”
