Phase two will launch in September 4, where the full-scale 130,000 product offering will be launched.

“We’ve been opening the doors to our Christmas Shop during the summer for years now and have become a real destination for fans of Christmas and festive decorations within and outside the UK,” Selfridges Christmas and home buyer Eleanor Gregory said.

“Some customers return to us year after year, excited at the prospect of discovering the new ranges and adding to their collections.

“They include a large number of domestic customers who love to Christmas shop very early in the year to get it wrapped and taken off their to-do list.

“They also tell us that they like to be able to take their pick of the very best selection available, whilst the range we offer is at its most comprehensive.”
