Harrods is a leader in luxury retail. Attracting customers from around the world, the iconic department store, owned by Qatar Holding, continues to surpass the expectations of its visitors and offer an unparalleled shopping experience to all who walk through its doors. Steeped in history, the establishment was opened by Charles Henry Harrod in 1849 with humble beginnings as an East End grocer and tea merchant. After moving to Knightsbridge, the Harrods legend was born and has since remained one of the most distinguished names in the luxury industry where anything is possible.
The store has exquisite merchandise spanning seven floors, a stellar restaurant portfolio, not to mention the opulent 100-year-old Food Halls; a selection of premier services such as By Appointment Personal Shopping and The Penthouse, Urban Retreat Spa, a concierge, Harrods Bank and The Studio – an exclusive interior design service. What undoubtedly sets Harrods apart from its competitors are its fantastic people. From the exceptional selling staff and expert buyers to the skilled chefs and famous Green Men, these unique individuals make up an inspirational team.
At Harrods we are passionate about exceeding expectations and achieving excellence in everything we do. As a leading luxury retail business, we understand that our customers expect us to conduct our operations in a responsible, transparent and ethical manner.
