Harvey Nichols is a luxurious chain store founded in 1831 by Benjamin Harvey, who opened a clothing store in London and expanded over the years. In 1841 Harvey hires James Nichols who ascended to the manager and ended up marrying his niece Annes Beale, Benjamin dies in 1850 leaving the business in charge of his wife, she makes the decision to partner with James Nichols forming HARVEY NICHOLS & Co. In 1889 they demolished the space they had occupied for more than fifty years giving way to a large department store. In 1920, Harvey Nichols was bought by Debenhams, a retailer with experiences in department stores, founded in the 18th century. In 1975 they open a restaurant called Harvey’s on the fifth floor, this small group formed by Harvey Nicholds & Co. And Debenhams is sold to Burton Group in 1991, who remodeled giving way to a new restaurant, cafe, bar and food market with an independent elevator that allowed them to stay open in hours that the main store closed.
HARVEY NICHOLS has huge stores and beauty bazaars in large and important cities of the world, designed by important architectural companies.
The “flagship store” or most representative store of Harvey Nichols is located in Knightsbridge, London, where restructured the last floor to create a restaurant, bar, cafeteria, wine, and food store, and the same has done with all the premises that its large size allows it.
In 1996 Harvey Nichols launches its first independent restaurant the OXO Tower Restaurant, Bar and Brasserie overlooking the spectacular Thames river.
