Ha! sorry bout that, just meant are there chains which I could find here, ill know soon enough when I arrive

Coming over to teach in an international primary school, there are no teaching jobs in Scotland so thought might as well take the plunge and move away! Just nervous I suppose, was hoping to do some saving while im in Dubai but thinking the cost of living is a lot higher than I originally thought!

Well being Glaswegian you'll want a drink or 7....

Seriously though, if your rent etc. is paid for, you can happily live on AED10k, you just have to watch where you go, loads of special offers for ladies here in the bars etc. Also when you hook up with your workmates, they'll know their way around too.

Get a time out dubai card too, you'll save 20% in loads of places.

Welcome and enjoy, although you wont know what's hit you when you get off the plane. August is hot!!!!

Sorry for the random questions!
Just about every UK high street chain is here, Next, Debenhams, New Look, Top Shop, River Island, etc, etc. They often have good sales on too!
