Popped into Harrods in London yesterday with my Partner. Such a disappointment as compared with what it used to be like.
The Christmas goods were interesting, but little thought to connecting the different sections together, no real theme, not really Christmas-inspiring. Expensive goods kept at one end, some nice stuff, but not well-presented and all a bit disjointed.
My partner has a Harrods teddy bear from some years ago,and far superior in quality to the stuff they had out on display. (Really soft ‘fur’ and very attractive)
The rest of the store is good in parts, but God-help-you if you want to eat in one of the restaurants or cafes ! I expect higher prices, but £19 for a sandwich ! Soup £9 !
We went over the road to Cafe Concerto and had a good meal at a fraction of the price. Was a time you could eat at a reasonable price in Harrods.
The food hall has changed quite a bit, and less choice as compared with before. I think they have brought in a lot of outside firms.
They have made some changes to decor near escalators, but taken away a lot of the ‘magic’ of Harrods. The new owner obviously has his own ideas.
Window displays were quite good, better than a lot.
Anyone else notice the differences ?
