“Only A Place To Be Seen.”
Review of Selfridges

Selfridges
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Selfridges has begun to lose the 'Wow' factor. Yes, from the outside of the building is amazing, but they are now packing more and more shops into one shop, that you 'cannot see the wood for the trees. It was never spaciously laid out inside, but it is becoming more like a giant flee market as retailers compete with retailers to get the most items into their alloted pitch. Similarly, the food hall has become an 'eating hall' with bar after bar of food dispensers with eager youngsters trying to get a bar stool at one of the fast moving food conveyor belts of pre packed food. More a place to be seen with a bowl of rice or a doughnut (and a glass of champagne) than a fine dining experience!

I struggled to see the merchandise on sale with any clarity, as new technolgy competed with coffee capsules and Alessi fruit bowls. I came out thinking, - yes, they sell everything, if you can find it!

Amazing building both inside and out and the DJ was cool but the foodhall very disappointing and not the size and scope of merchandise I'd hoped for. Beauty area could have been a Boots.

It has a great atmosphere, very hustle and bustle. I like that. Good choice of foods, all cooked in front of you. Good value for money. Gets extremely busy.

The building itself is amazing and the insides good and the stock is always right but their is one downside PRICE. I have never visited somewhere so expensive in my live. The shopping center it ajoins to is fine and has loo's but selfridges itself is overpriced and the only thing to do their is gaup and gaze. If you had the money however i would say go for it and enjoy every mnute of it as it's the best money can buy!

This shop has lots of things on offer including food you don't see normally. Worth a look around especially the food area with lots of different ingredients and a range of restaurants.
