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 and English (of Norman origin): metonymic occupational name for an official of the wardrobe, in medieval usage the department of a royal or noble household responsible for clothing, armor, bedding, and other personal items (i.e. for someone who was in charge of the garments worn by a feudal lord and his household), from Norman French warderobe, central French garderobe (warder, garder ‘to watch over, guard’ + robe ‘garment’).
