LONDON — Time is running out for would-be bidders to launch a rival offer for Selfridges, the London-based department store chain that Canadian billionaire Galen Weston offered to buy earlier this week for a total of $1.14 billion.

Selfridges chairman Alun Cuthcart told WWD on the sidelines of the company’s annual shareholders’ meeting here Thursday that documents relating to Weston’s offer would be sent to shareholders over the next few days.
