The Knightsbridge-based retailer Harrods is keen to dispel links between its London flagship and a department store in Buenos Aires that will trade under the same name starting in September. The Argentine retailer, which first opened in 1914, shared directors with the London Harrods until 1945, but the British retailer sold all interests in the South American store in 1968. Atilio Gibertoni, head of CBC-Interconfinanz, an Italian-Swiss venture that owns a 51 percent stake in the Argentine store, has received financial backing from Besknet, a group of Italian investors, to see the store open by September. “We sincerely hope that customers will not confuse the store in Buenos Aires, above whose door the word ‘Harrods’ appears, with our department store in London’s Knightsbridge,” a spokesperson for Harrods Ltd. (London) said. “There are absolutely no similarities or partnerships between the two.” In 1998, the London Harrods lost a legal battle to protect its name from being marketed by the Argentine retailer.
