Harrods Solids Question
Posted 09 November 2004 - 11:54 AM
I have just been in touch with Harrods to see which solids they have left and the S.A mentioned something about a Beyond Paradise Bear at £195? I have never
heard of it!
Has anybody got any info on this solid please.

Nice to see you

Also, the 4 Harrods bear solids issued so far don't have Beyond Paradise. The first two had Pleasures and the last two had Beautiful. We'll be interested to see what they are talking about.

Makes me wonder if this person was sold the #151 piece of this solid

All three of the Harrods solids we have came with the card, inside the box, describing them. Someone is getting the runaround. hmmm.

I am praying that there are only 150 EM's out there and not 1500.

The three solids I purchased from Harrods came with their cards.

I think that the S/A I spoke to didn't really know her stuff, as on further investigation it turns out that she was reffering to Lion & Crown Don't think she goes to the Zoo too often
I have been calling the Direct Mail department every day to see if the catalogue is out yet (can't order until it is out) but no joy yet
I have only ordered the Teddy for myself this year and that did have the card.
I also ordered 2 for a friend and they both had the card also.
I'm sorry for all the confusion, but if there was another Bear I wanted to know about it
Best wishes to all

Surprised this didn't happen to me. I received all the cards.

I am fed up with the attitude of EL at Harrods and now I hear they are going to have the monopoly concerning all solids in the UK. That for me is appalling news! Especially when stores out of London have given me such wonderful care over the years. Compared to the treatment of our American collectors, we are downgraded and regarded as non-entities. This is something other people here feel strongly about too.
SO COPRORATE OFFICE IN THE USA, IF YOU ARE READING THIS, PLEASE LOOK INTO MAKING HARRODS LIMITED SOLIDS AVAILABLE SO THAT WE CAN BUY THEM OVERSEAS.

Saying this, there are more than one department store in the US and Australia that sell EL solids. Likewise, there should be more than one store in the UK that should stock them too so that Harrods does not have the monopoly.
Competition is good and this might make Harrods attitude towards customers change. (Not to mention some of there strange rules and expensive shipping costs!)

I think the problem here is one store having the monopoly. As you say, without competition there is not the incentive to do more for the customer. We are a captive audience!
Let us hope that the situation will change and that the old department stores will receive the solids too. I can understand harrods keeping their own, but not the entire range of estee lauder solid perfumes.
Will let you know if i see them anywhere else in the Uk.
Thank you for your thoughts!
