Ralph Lauren closes lower-ground Harrods concession following dispute

Ralph Lauren has closed its Polo sub-brand’s menswear concession on the lower-ground floor of Harrods following a disagreement over building works, Drapers understands.

The Knightsbridge department store is planning a £20m refurbishment, which is expected to begin later this year.

A source told Drapers Ralph Lauren opposed requests to erect a hoarding over some of its space on the lower-ground floor while the work is carried out.

The brand has two remaining concessions in the store – one for womenswear on the first floor and a more casual menswear space on the fifth.

It was reported to have been in negotiations to expand on the fifth floor. However, it is understood the talks fell through and the area will remain the same size.

The lower-ground floor houses men’s contemporary collections, the men’s denim gallery, the men’s international gallery, and men’s accessories and footwear.

As part of the £20m refurbishment, Harrods will create a new entrance hall and install double escalators from the lower-ground to the fifth floor.

Harrods declined to comment.
