For the population of the city Canterbury has a fairly good amount of shops, bolstered by its student population and tourism in the summer. In the the center there are many small touristy shops offering the standard UK tourist memrobillia such as teddy bears in union Jack flags, but also a good amount of highstreet shops such as Topshop, H&M, HMV, Debenhams, Boots, New Look, Jack Wills, and M&S. Further to this there are many smaller local shops that gain popularity with students such as Third eye, Old fashioned sweet shop and Funky Monks. However students often find that certain shops not being present is a problem such as Primark and John Lewis.
