Harrods Summer Sale draws thousands of bargain hunters to the Knightsbridge store every year. Shoppers sniff out cut-price designer clothes, kitchen appliances and other goodies in the world-renowned prim and proper emporium. Arrive in the small hours, prepared to queue.
Employing some 6000 staff across a million square feet of selling space, Harrods boasts to be Omnia Omnibus Ubique - all things for all people, everywhere. It also goes to great lengths to source and deliver goods - it once famously hired a gondola to deliver furniture to a customer in Venice.
With up to 250,000 regularly visiting on the first day of sales, competition for prize pieces is fierce but there are bargains galore.
