A story came about as this motto went around.

A man walks in to Harrods and said:
"This is Harrods right? all things for all people?" 
"that's correct Sir" said the man a the counter. 
"ok then if this is the place where I can get anything, then I want an elephant sandwich!"
Shocked as the man at the counter heard his impoliteness and went to the back to ask. 
"Unfortunately Sir we've run out of bread"
Harrods was the first place to have escalators in England. After they were installed and open to the public, brandy was offered to customers when they got to the top floor to congratulate them after their experience.

This is the only department store in the world with a dress code, your clothes has to be clean and presentable. no shorts and sandals or vests, you must carry your rucksack in your hand instead on your back or shoulder.
