The store was established in 1831 by Benjamin Harvey as a linen shop in a terraced house on the corner of Knightsbridge and Sloane Street. Over the years, the business expanded significantly. After Harvey died in 1850, his wife, Anne Harvey, collaborated with James Nichols to form Harvey Nichols & Co. The current red-brick building was completed in 1894.
Harvey Nichols is mainly known for its fashion, beauty, food, and wine products. They have an extensive range of luxury fashion brands and designer collections for both men and women. The store frequently hosts fashion events and launches and has exclusive collections not readily available elsewhere.
