Luxury department store Harvey Nichols Leeds is marking its 25th anniversary in the city with a line up of special events and promotions this October. 

The "Knightsbridge of the North" was the first Harvey Nichols store to open outside of London on 23 October 1996, with five floors of fashion, beauty, food and wine. The store remains the anchor retailer in the historic Victoria Quarter of Leeds' retail landscape, attracting shopper across Yorkshire.

To celebrate its landmark birthday this month, the store will host a series of events, competitions and promotions, with special treats on offer for customers shopping in-store during its birthday weekend.

To kick off the celebrations, the store will be hosting The Beauty Social on 20 October, where customers can enjoy a night with prosecco,  expert masterclasses, a live DJ set before taking home a Harvey Nichols Gift Bag.

From15-22 October, in collaboration with Victoria Leeds, the luxury retailer is giving one lucky customer the chance to win a luxury shopping spree with an expert stylist on hand and £1,000 to spend.

Headlining the celebrations, the store will host an all-day shopping event on 23 October with complimentary drinks tastings, live DJ sets and party food pop-ups throughout the store. Customers who spend £50 or more will also receive a special birthday scratchcard. From 1pm-5pm, customers can join the resident experts from the Wine Shop to enjoy a wine tasting masterclass from the Autumn Wine Festival and celebrity winemakers.

Harvey Nichols CEO Manju Malhotra, said: “Together with our Leeds store team, we are proud to celebrate our landmark 25th birthday in the city. Shortly before I joined the company, the announcement came that Harvey Nichols Leeds would become the first store to open outside of London. This visionary approach, recognising opportunity in regional cities, made front page news and it swiftly became our foothold in the north, paving the way for a further six Harvey Nichols stores across Britain and Ireland, along with six internationally.

“As the Leeds store continues to enjoy its position as the ultimate retail and dining destination in the city, we would like to thank our store team and our customers for their years of loyal custom and to invite them all to join us in celebrating our special birthday with a whole host of special events this October.”.
