1. We use 'the' with these kinds of place names: rivers (the Rhine), deserts (the Sahara), etc.
2. We don't use 'the' with: continents (Africa), towns (Oxford), streets (Park Street), etc.
How about the names of department stores? Do they belong to #1 ('The' is necessary.) or #2 (Zero article.)?
Thank you very much for your reply.
I spent a lot of money at Elizabeth Arden's last week.
