Harrods 'convenience' experiment ends

Harrods has pulled the plug on its convenience store on Brompton Road and US brand National Geographic is taking it over.

The shop at 102 Brompton Road, on the other side of the road to the one million square foot luxury department store, has been open since 2006 and is thought to have struggled. The site had been marketed by CBRE, which was hired by owner HSBC. Harrods was bought by Qatar Holdings last year.
