Location: 400 Oxford Street, W1A 2LR

Description: Contrary to popular myth... Selfridges is not a corner store that sells refrigeration units but rather a first-class department store founded by American entrepreneur Harry Gordon Selfridge who opened the large store in London's Oxford Street on 15 March 1909.

But did you know that... on the opening day, 90,000 people passed through the glowing doors; also the store has 8 floors and 9 passenger lifts, it has 100 departments, and Selfridges first sale was for a handkerchief at 1s.4d - or 6.7 pence.

Bit of a bargain then - go visit - the food hall rocks.
