Every year on the Monday morning after Christmas, the Harrods annual sale starts. Thousands of people visit the department store in search of quality goods at cheap prices. On the first day of the sale this year, a total of 150,000 people spent some six million pounds. Although Monday looked like chaos, on the following Saturday, 250,000 people spent 12 million pounds.

There is, it seems, always a must-have item and this year the longest queues are for designer bags. Iguchi, a young Japanese visitor, waited for two hours just to buy his girlfriend a handbag. 'I got a good deal, I only paid 50 per cent of the normal price for this Gucci bag,' said the happy tourist.

'Also, when I say that I bought it at the Harrods sale, my girlfriend will be even more pleased - Harrods is very well known in Japan,' he added.

Harrods first opened in 1849 when Charles Henry Harrod bought and re-named a grocery store on the Brompton Road - where the shop is still located - and the initial sale was held in 1870.

Vivian Ugent, 63, and her 70-year-old husband Donald from St Louis, Missouri, have visited the sale for the past 18 years. 'We were here at 6.00 am and some people we know brought a chair for me to sit on, which was nice,' Mrs Ugent said. 'In the past, we always came at 4.30 am but we're getting a bit old for that,' she added, saying that they were especially interested in bargain china.

'We always buy my husband an English hat too, because he keeps losing them.'
