Selfridges weathered the 2020 storm, despite enduring the toughest retail year in decades. That’s according to company chief Anne Pitcher who admitted that it was the “most difficult” period in its 113 years.
Only weeks after England’s November lockdown ended, a big chunk of the country has moved back into strict Covid rules as a new ‘tier 4’ means non-essential stores have again had to close in London and the South East.
World-renowned department store Selfridges has been awarded additional protection for its Oxford Street, London, building. It's one of 423 National Heritage List sites to be added or upgraded on Historic England's list.
