Selfridges has reopened its Food Hall on its London flagship, but the rest of the store and its other locations in Manchester and Birmingham remain closed while the lockdown continues.

Selfridges said the reopening of his London food hall will come with “strict” social distancing measures to keep employees and customers safe amid the coronavirus pandemic.

In addition to fresh food from the greengrocer, the bakery, the butcher and the fishmonger, a range of household and pharmacy items is also offered

The department store retailer also offers essential grocery boxes and homemade kits to try a new skill at home for the first time.

As with many other grocery stores, the Selfridge grocery hall will be open with reduced hours from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The news comes after Selfridges was one of the first UK retailers to temporarily close its stores during the coronavirus crisis. He took the initiative to do so about a week before the UK government announced a nationwide lockdown.

“We are excited to reopen the doors to our food hall and to serve our local community again,” said Michael Weber, Selfridges’ Food Director.

“We work hard to ensure that our customers and our team members have a safe and welcoming environment, including some Selfridges experiences, to add a little bit of brightness to each day.”

Selfridges said it would give NHS, health and social workers easy access to the grocery hall with free use of the parking lot, private entrance and quick check-out.

A member of the Food Hall team receives a fridge of groceries every week as part of the retailer’s “Fullfridges” initiative and in recognition of their service during the pandemic.
