Turning shopping into an experience!
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Powerchair
One of the flag ship stores on Oxford Street, Selfridge's was surprisingly accessible to me as a powerchair user.
Transport & Parking
The store is located on Oxford Street and is on one of the busiest streets in the capital. There are plenty of buses passing along the road and these are accessible. There's a tube station nearby.
We entered the main door which was a little tricky but we did get some help from staff the second time we used it. I'm sure there may be easier entrances in other parts of the store. Once inside the surfaces are smooth and easy to negotiate as a wheelchair user. We took the nearby lift, which was beautifully decorated, down to the technology department. The lift was spacious and the signage inside explaining the different floors was really good. Getting around the departments was good as unlike many stores there was plenty of room between the displays.
Not needing the toilet during this visit I cannot comment. I am are that there are several accessible loos in the store.
Staff were very helpful and offered assistance with browsing and answering questions as I pursued my shopping adventure.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
A fantastic store to visit. Loads of departments and well laid out so you can see everything. I would have stayed longer but for the need to catch a train. Will certainly make a follow up visit.
