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!
