In 1967, a baby Indian elephant named Gertie, was bought at Harrods and given to Ronald Reagan by Leka, son of King Zog, the late King of Albania.
From its humble beginnings in 1834, when Charles Henry Harrod began trading as a grocer in East London, to its world-renowned status as a beacon of luxury retail, Harrods has forged a unique path. Boasting seven floors of exquisite collections, and more than 330 departments, the selection of merchandise is unsurpassed: from the most coveted haute couture to the latest pet accessories – Harrods continues to grow from strength to strength, guided by its philosophy ‘anything is possible’.
