Harrods is very much a city within a city. Covering 4.5 acres, with over 1 million square feet of selling space, the store generates 70% of its own electricity from its own generators, draws water from its three artesian wells – the deepest of which is 489 ft – and operates 40 lifts that cover 39,800 miles per year. The switchboard takes 7,000 calls a day, and the famous facade is picked out by 12,000 lightbulbs – of which 300 a day are changed by the store’s electrical engineers.
 On the wine front they stock Champagne and sparkling wine from well-established brands such as Veuve Clicquot and Moet & Chandon, plus a range of red, white and rosé.
