You have some valid points there. I did purchase Lady Liberty in England though.
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.
On the topic of Harrods, I would like to add THAT I HOPE THEIR SOLIDS WILL BE SOLD IN THE STATES AND THAT A DECISION WILL BE ARRIVED AT SOON. OBVIOUSLY THESE TO REMAIN LIMITED IN NUMBER
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.
