The original building was destroyed by a fire in 1892 but, with a new design in mind, the store was reopened in 1895 with new features. It was named Harrods of the North after it was given Royal Warrant in 1911 and was visited by Queen Elizabeth II on its 150th anniversary.

    Name Meaning

    Scottish: variant of Jamison . It probably originated in the pronunciation of James as Jamis, but the Scottish preference for this form of Jamison will have been reinforced by association with Jamie, the Scots pet form of James .
