KNOW SELFRIDGES

Harry Gordon Selfridge first arrived in London from Chicago in 1906 with his heart set on opening his dream store. With his revolutionary understanding of publicity and the theatre of retail, Selfridges Oxford Street opened its doors for the first time in 1909.
 
The founder’s spirit of innovation and creativity lives on through its owners today. Since 2003, W. Galen Weston and his family have owned and operated the business. With the store being named ‘Best Department Store in the World’ on three consecutive occasions in a row (2010, 2012 & 2014) and most recently being awarded the title of ‘World’s Best Sustainability Campaign by a Department Store’ at the Global Department Store Summit 2016, Selfridges today is more than just the sum of its products. It's a shopping experience that promises to surprise, amaze and amuse and to this day, as Harry Gordon Selfridge said, ‘Everyone is welcome’.
 
With our Vision, to be the destination for the most extraordinary customer experience, innovative and iconic ways to make this a reality are never too far away. An exciting investment programme is underway in our Oxford Street store which has already seen us open the revolutionary Body Studio and the first phase of our new Designer Studio, providing customers with cutting-edge and progressive designer fashion in a creative and dynamic environment. In November 2016 we opened phase one of our new Accessories Hall – the Northern Hall. Once completed, the 60,000 sq. ft. space will be our biggest destination. It will also include a new concept space, personalisation bar and eyewear destination. 2017 has more exciting plans to unveil.
 
Team members across our business strive to keep our Vision a reality through the values we live day to day and the stories we make, tell and share.
 

KNOW WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU

Extraordinary experiences are not only for customers, but team members too. We offer all team members the chance to be a part of something unique where they can enjoy careers that provide inspiring experiences, exciting challenges and great benefits.

Living our Values is essential to the way we work day to day, encouraging greater social responsibility amongst our team members. From our Project Ocean campaign to Bright Young Things, we are focused on a long term approach to sustainability by buying better and inspiring change.
