SHOP at The Savoy is the first five star hotel shopping concept of its kind, created by Change Retail, a company responsible for rewriting the demand for super-luxe shopping within world-famous hotels. Managing Director, Simon Thompson comments:

“I’ve always asked, why do 5 Star hotels offer 2 Star retail? The Savoy, with its heritage, luxury, location and quintessential Englishness is a natural home for the launch of our SHOP concept. We can offer a revolutionary 5 star shopping experience that pin-points London’s best finds and hidden gems, delivered straight to the guests”

Established in early 2010, Change Retail is formed of some of the most talented names in the retail, hotel, luxury brand and marketing industries including David Riddiford (Director), Peter Tyrie MBE (Director), Yasmin Sewell (Collection Consultant), Valerie Wickes (Creative Consultant), Kate Henderson (VM), Claire Sokell Thompson (Creative Director) and Elinor Bashan (Retail Director).
