“More than Your Average Department Store”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

This is a chance to sample some of the finer newer designers from the UK while being able to purchase some local food specialties in the Food Court Experience.

It is busy so be prepared to have full shopping aisles and see lots of foreign visitors. You can tell it is a spot to buy and they make it very easy to get Vat reimbursement there so make sure you plan to add a bit of time to do this.

“Overwhelming experience!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

To much stuff, way to expensive. Had a hard time fiding our way around thw store. Walked out overwhelmed and frustrated! Only positive is that is from another country and spend over 100 pounds you get tax back!

“High Class Shopping”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Selfridge's is a very high end store requiring deep pockets. However, it costs nothing to look. Do step into the shoe section. The shoes are organized by designer in little boutiques that are beautifully decorated. I spent a few moments in the Chanel boutique. I told the sales associate I couldn't possibly afford anything she had to sell but she was welcoming and gracious. I was invited to look around as much as I wanted. She also explained that the boutique was modeled after Ms. Chanel's own apartment. Visiting Selfridges was a great experience.

“Poor Customer Service/Warranty - (Read this and be aware)”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

We ordered an electrical item online with Selfridges 6 months ago. This item no longer works due to a fault and after ringing and eventually speaking to a manager in the store (Oxford Street) I was told that the only warranty that Selfridges will give on any electrical item is 14 DAYS! I was told that I should have filled in the manufactures warranty and send it off when I originally received the item from them I said that any other decent shop would have honoured the 12 month warranty and refunded or replaced the item. The reply was we only warranty 14 days and after that it was nothing to do with us. I was also told that they will be altering their terms and conditions as this is not stated at present. Please be aware of this and my advice would be to never ever buy any electrical item from Selfridges and shop elsewhere. You have been warned. Even one star is too high on this review If a zero star could have been awarded it would have been.
