Selfridges is a chain of department stores similar to Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s but only found across the pond. The Chicago connection is that H. Gordon Selfridge worked his way up at Marshall Field’s and married Rosalie Buckingham-of the Chicago Buckingham. The store original was designed by famed architect Daniel Burnham.
