Secrets of Selfridges

Watch Sunday, April 6, 2014 at 10pm on WMHT TV.

SECRETS OF SELFRIDGES takes viewers to the place where luxury shopping was born. The brain child of an American — Harry Gordon Selfridge, whose life is depicted in the ongoing hit PBS show MASTERPIECE “Mr. Selfridge” — Selfridge & Co. spurred a revolution in the way Londoners shopped, introducing a new American retail model that made shopping less a practical pursuit and more a luxurious adventure. Keen to put the shopper’s experience above anything else, it was Selfridge who adopted the philosophy that “The customer is always right,” a mantra for shops all over the world. 

Two words are synonymous with Selfridges: luxury and London. However, Selfridges was the brainchild of an American — Harry Gordon Selfridge — whose life was depicted in the MASTERPIECE series “Mr. Selfridge.” The real, flamboyant Mr. Selfridge brought about a complete revolution in the way Londoners shopped, introducing a new American retail model that made shopping less a practical pursuit and more a luxurious adventure. The program reveals the grandiose store’s hidden stories and delves deep into the mind of its ambitious creator.
