Luxury department store Selfridges announced this morning it will make around 450 people redundant as the coronavirus crisis claims more UK high street jobs. The retailer said it will reduce its overall headcount by 14 per cent as sales this year are forecast to be “significantly less” than 2019. The retailer will focus on strengthening its digital proposition, as well as “sustainability and experiences”.
