Selfridges in London is the biggest department store in Oxford Street and after Harrods the second biggest in London. The luxury department store was founded in the year 1909 by the American Harry Gordon Selfridge. He was convinced that he could create a serious competitor to the classic English stores by using some modern American sales methods. The selling concept for luxury shopping seems to work successfully for over 100 years.
