Mexico's best known department store is called, strangely, Liverpool. There are 73 of them (and another 17 shopping malls). They were actually founded by a Frenchman in 1847, initially selling just clothes, with most of the merchandise being shipped to Mexico from Merseyside, hence the name. 
This one's fancy, designed by Rojkind Arquitectos and opened in 2011, but mostly they're regular looking, including the one we go to in Polanco. We like them because they seem to have perpetual 15-30% discounts and are as over-staffed as their Japanese equivalents.
