A big congratulations to Selfridges in London! On Friday, the renowned “has it all” block was named as the World’s Best Department Store by the Intercontinental Group of Department Stores. Selfridges managed to shove out the competition, which included Bloomingdale’s in New York and Lane Crawford in Hong Kong, to win the top spot!
Paul Kelly, Selfridges Vice Chairman, had this to say:
We are delighted to have won this very special award and very proud of our teams who have all contributed in making this happen. This is very much in recognition of all their hard work. This centenary-old brand, built on the most extraordinary heritage, confirms that Selfridges is the most relevant and exciting department store today.
In other news…
There are only eight hours left before the greatest sale on earth…at the, now, greatest department sale on earth starts!!! That’s right, tomorrow morning at 8am Selfridges will open its doors to the public for the summer sale, which is one of the most anticipated sales events of the year. The buzz was alive in store today with sales associates readying the premises for what is sure to be a stampede of sale hungry shoppers first thing tomorrow morning. I’ll be one of them. I have a gift card I’ve been waiting to use for this particular occasion and I’m not leaving until I have a deal firmly secured under my arm.
