The boss of Harrods said the retailer is “unbelievably well placed to take advantage of the younger shoppers who want to have really great quality beauty” and is upbeat about the chances of success for the firm’s new beauty chain. He also sees a big opportunity in targeting the ultra-luxury market in China, especially younger shoppers, and will open a permanent standalone there in 2020.
Harrods MD Michael ward is overseeing the opening of the first of the firm’s new H Beauty concept in the Lakeside mall in Essex early in 2020 and this will be followed by a debut in Milton Keynes.
