One of the great London stores
With its grand neo-classical facade, Selfridges formidably asserts itself as the centrepiece of Europe's biggest shopping street. Not as sensorially overwhelming as Harrods or as calming and accommodating as John Lewis/Peter Jones, Selfridges combines stateliness and flash. You'll find just about every consumer need catered to — there's a major food hall — but of particularly gay appeal is the first-floor [US = second-floor] men's clothing department, featuring a marked hierarchy of designers — from Calvin Klein and Adidas to Armani, Prada and Alexander McQueen — plus grooming and skin care. Gets an estimated 20 million visitors per year, with that number sure to rise following £300 million of planned renovations.
