Selfridges was the brain child of an American-Mr. Harry Gordon Selfridge. He brought about a complete revolution in the way that Londoners shopped, introducing a new American retail model which made shopping less of a practical pursuit and more of a luxurious adventure. But there was another side to the story-Harry's private life. When it began to seep into his business, the effect on him and his store was devastating.

Selfridge was brilliant in transferring US marketing and service to a very different shopping culture in London. he was very un-brilliant in losing a great deal of money, and eventually his store, to gambling. very interesting that the store is now owned by a Canadian family.
