Harrods began as a wholesale grocer and tea merchants in east London, first opening its doors in 1834.
Since then, it has grown to become the world’s most famous department store, known for its unrivalled range of luxury merchandise. As many lives, generations, cultures and stories pass through Harrods’ doors, their mission remains unchanged: to service the needs and aspirations of their customers, to create new stories and bring moments of delight. Whoever they are and wherever they come from, their customers can always expect to be treated with grace, courtesy and care.
Open since 1834 by Charles Henry Harrod and now owned by Qatar Holding Authority, Harrods is 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, Harrods 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. Their people lie at the core of their strength – their unique personalities and their desire to exceed expectations are what enables the brand to make the impossible possible for their customers.
