Harrods has seen its most successful summer sale in the London store's history, taking GBP67.3m across the four-week promotion. The 4 per cent increase over last year's sale saw high demand for fashion, jewellery and accessories, with 'healthy double digit growth' in departments such as beauty, childrenswear, toys and food. The sale was opened by singer Christina Aguilera, whose appearance attracted hundreds of fans trying to catch a glimpse of the star as she browsed the exclusive store.

Harrods chairman Mohamed Al Fayed said: "Harrods' ongoing commitment to broaden its product ranges and further improve the shopping environment has contributed to these excellent results. We will always strive to find new ways of giving our customers the goods and services they want." Chief executive Richard Simonin said: Harrods has increased sales by 9.1 per cent since February 1 and is significantly gaining market share in London."
