Don't miss anything
Everything for everyone everywhere ... although only in Argentina. Yes, Harrods like the one in London!
It was the first and only branch of the British store outside of that country. It opened its doors in 1914 and closed in 1998. Currently, the building is closed and in a state of deterioration. We can still peek through the large windows and travel a little in time and imagine what one of the most traditional stores in the city could be, in addition to selling different brands of clothing, lingerie, footwear, cosmetics, electronic items, toys, services of hairdresser, had a confectionery with breakfast and snack "very British" in turn was the first and the few places in Argentina that sold imported items with the theme of "everything for everyone everywhere."
Harrod has 6529 square meters, with 8 levels and two basements were designed by the architects Paul Bell Chambers and Louis Newbery Thomas, and the extensions were made by Fred K. Sage. With its change of owners in 1985, it had the last remodeling that was designed by the study of Juan Carlos López y Asociados.
