Opened by Charles Henry Harrod, an East End grocer and tea merchant, in 1834, relocating to Knightsbridge in 1849, The Harrods store is recognised globally as a symbol of excellence. Harrods is a truly iconic landmark known all over the World, welcoming visitors from all over. Today, Harrods is one of the world’s few single-site department stores, occupying a prime five-acre site along the Brompton Road.
They are truly unique – a house of maisons, a modern atelier, a workshop of wonders, a convener, patron and a celebrator of the world’s finest. Known around the world as one of the great luxury emporiums, they offer a transformative experience to customers who know that true value of exceptional goods and services lies beyond price. They are committed to excellence and artistry, inspired to reinvent and surprise, ensuring their position as a leader in the category.
Since 2017, their Owner Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) has supported their decision to invest into the evolution of the store. From Fashion Designer rooms to extended beauty Halls, food halls and restaurants, every aspect of the store is being re-imagined to optimise the customer experience and enable Harrods to maintain their place as the masters of luxury and the experts of exceptional. Every year, over 60 million domestic and international visitors connect with them online and through their stores in Knightsbridge, Heathrow & Gatwick airports and H Beauty emporiums as they wish to experience something unique that is quintessentially British.
