Harrods described its Westfield outlet as a concept store for existing season stock, adding the new unit is meant take pressure off the vast flagship in Knightsbridge as it reopens with new and “significant” social-distancing measures. June 15 would usually have been a big summer sale moment at Harrods, and the store said it did not want to run the risk of overcrowding. The outlet’s selection will include fashion, beauty and accessories drawn from the Harrods sale, and the new unit will occupy a premium space at the Westfield shopping mall, set over two floors. Additionally, Harrods said its seasonal sale will have a bigger presence online, also due to the new social-distancing measures. Harrods’ Knightsbridge store will open on June 15, along with other nonessential retailers in England, with a focus on “new and exclusive edits,” and some seasonal reductions.
