Description:

Founded by Charles Henry Harrod in 1849, Harrods is a known as a luxury department store in Knightsbridge. H Beauty was launched in 2020, operating as large dedicated Harrods beauty halls, with five halls planned to open before the end of 2022.

Harrods was acquired by House of Fraser in 1959, which in turn was purchased by the Fayed brothers in 1985. In May 2010 Harrods was sold to Qatar Holdings, the sovereign wealth fund of the State of Qatar.

In recent years Harrods has significantly invested into expanding its beauty offering, first through the ‘Beauty Masterplan’, an investment project that saw the opening of a new 90,000 sq ft Beauty Hall in the Knightsbridge store in 2019, and more recently through the launch of H beauty.
