           With Harry’s future hanging in the balance, the store throws the sale to end all sales and cupid makes some final decisions.

           With the deadline of his hasty promise looming, Harry stocks the store for the ultimate sale. As other businesses accuse him of playing unfairly, the public and the shareholders are worked into a frenzy, and Harry must prepare for the worst.

          Meanwhile, Princess Marie is reunited with her past, and finds a way to repay the Selfridges for their generosity. Lord Loxley is pushed over the edge by an overseas announcement, and is keen to let his frustration out on Harry.

          Ms. Mardle seeks greener pastures. George Towler heads a new department. Gordon takes control of his future. Violette gets closure. Victor’s plan pays off in the knick of time.

          The award-winning series is the story of Harry Gordon Selfridge, a flamboyant American entrepreneur who became a department store magnate and exclaimed: “We are going to show the world how to make shopping thrilling!” Mr. Selfridge is deliciously enjoyable not only for its magnificent Edwardian style and focus on class, fashion, and feminism, but for its compelling intrigue and love affairs. These liaisons, including the troubled marriage of Harry Selfridge (Jeremy Piven) and Rose Selfridge (Frances O’Connor) and the intriguingly chaste triangle of Agnes (Aisling Loftus), Victor (Trystan Gravelle), and Henri LeClair (Gre?gory Fitoussi), have drawn and held a loyal audience. So, too, have the dramatic explorations of the evolving roles of women at the turn of the 20th century. As Harry Selfridge encourages the shift of female employees into jobs traditionally held by men, a number of interesting subplots have bloomed during season three.
