Harry Gordon Selfridge first arrived in London from Chicago in 1906 with his heart set on opening his dream store. With his revolutionary understanding of publicity and the theatre of retail, Selfridges Oxford Street opened its doors for the first time in 1909.
The founder’s spirit of innovation and creativity lives on through its owners today. Since 2003, W. Galen Weston and his family have owned and operated the business. With the store being titled the Best Department Store in the World on three consecutive occasions in a row (2010, 2012 & 2014) and most recently being awarded the title of the World’s Best Sustainability Campaign by a Department Store at the Global Department Store Summit 2016, Selfridges today is more than just the sum of its products. It's a shopping experience that promises to surprise, amaze and amuse its customers by delivering extraordinary customer experiences and to this day, as Harry Gordon Selfridge said, ‘Everyone is welcome’.
With our vision, to be the destination for the most extraordinary shopping experience, innovative and iconic ways to make this a reality are never too far away. Investment from our Chairman has already seen the Oxford Street store transform with the largest department Selfridges has ever unveiled, The Body Studio opened in April. A unique concept space presenting over 150 brands and more than 30,000 different styles edited together to revolutionise the way women shop for Bodywear. And it doesn’t stop there. Later in the year we The Designer Studios will launch on 3 with the Accessories department also in line for an astonishing transformation. With the overall floor space doubling in size to 50,000 sq ft it will house an offering from sunglasses, small leather goods to high end luxury brands as well as high street names.
Team members from across the five locations strive to keep the vision a reality through the values we live day to day and the stories we make, tell and share.
Group Chairman W.Galen Weston said:
“In the last 10 years Selfridges has grown from strength to strength and this significant investment in the redevelopment of our Oxford Street store is part of our commitment across all our businesses to provide leading luxury shopping experiences for our customers around the world.”
