The actual building of Harrods was constructed between 1901 and 1905 and today could easily be classed as a London landmark. But it had humble beginnings as it started as a small store in Stepney, East London. Initially it only sold tea and groceries untill it moved to Knightsbridge and expanded. Mohamed Al-Fayed and his brother Ali bought Harrods in 1985 from House of Fraser and in 2010 it was sold to Qatar Holdings for £1.5 billion.
