Selfridges is my favourite shop of all time!!! i live in this shop and buy most things from here. I find selfridges a great place to buy gifts for people from, as they are very unique. I particularly like Vom Fas which i bought my fella's xmas present from. You select the glass bottle or bottles you like and then choose from a wide range of different alcoholic beverages in which to fill it with. Alternatively if your not the alcohol lover you can opt to fill your desired glass with infused cooking oils etc which makes for a unique and personalised gift.
I also enjoy looking around at the different food places they have in there. You can choose all sorts of foreign dished from chinese, thai, indian to sea food and lots more, which allows you to brake away from the traditional high street food outlets such as subway, mcdonalds and pizza hut.
They have fashions, cosmetics, electronics, home furnishings and lots more all under one roof that definately appeals to me and due to its unique quality makes shopping a little bit more interesting.
For valentines day they did many novelty sweets, chocolates and other bits and pieces that make for great presents, i spent a fortune in there and went a little mad because it was for a good cause :)
I like things to be a little different and i don't have a bad word to say about it at all.
Selfridges is a designer store that sells pretty much everything. There is a huge range of choice there. I particularly like Selfridges because it has a lot of concessions of my favourite stores. For example they have an All Saints concession in there and I am often able to get things I want in here that are sold out in the main store.
Selfridges seem to have very knowledgeable staff and they always seem to be really helpful. For example when I ask where a certain brand is the staff always take me there instead of just explaining. I also recently bought a gift there that I wanted gift wrapping but it was quite big. A few staff from different departments were running all over the store for me to find something to use to gift wrap it and it was eventually done.
One of the problems with the staff here is that they all seemed to be a little too laid back. There is no urgency in what they are doing which can be annoying when I am in a rush and they are taking their time at the checkout.
I like the amount of choice I have at Selfridges, there is something for everyone here whether it be furniture, clothing, jewellery or food. I like that you can go to Selfridges and get pretty much everything you want in there. It does however have some very high end brands in there so there are some quite expensive items in there but the sales always offer great value and are quite frequent too.
Overall I would say that Selfridges is one of the best department stores in the UK. Many people think it is quite pretentious but until you have been there and tried it out you can't really comment.
