Harrods Department Store is Quarantined - for the First Time in 170 Years
London's most famous department store, Harrods, is closed indefinitely. The reason was the quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic. Only grocery rooms and a pharmacy are currently open. The remaining departments of the store work only online.
Harrods has gone through many challenges during its 170-year history. We continued to trade and serve our customers during World War II, and only closed for a short period of time after the car bomb attack of the 1980s. Harrods is a symbol of resilience in a changing and often uncertain world, and I know that our values will ensure that we as a business come through this next chapter. We wish all of our customers, partners and friends well and look forward to seeing you again very soon. - Michael Ward, Managing Director, Harrods
