Male staff are anxious to enlist in the army, gaining the nickname the Selfridge Brigade. Agnes is upset to learn that brother George has joined up but cannot prevent him whilst Victor is about to sign up but his uncle Gio is dying and asks him to stay and look after the family. Rose, Lady Mae and Delphine hold a charity sale to raise funds for Belgian refugees, taking place in the store's Palm Court restaurant. This leads to a confrontation between Thackeray (angry that a donation tin is put on his counter) and Henri, but Harry has now appointed Henri his deputy and Thackeray must back down. Meanwhile Miss Mardle strikes up a friendship with one of the refugees, chocolate maker Jean Neuhaus. Frank obtains his own newspaper column and asks Kitty if she can provide information to discredit Loxley and his dubious role in the military procurement committee. Lady Mae has the same aim in mind after her maid tells her that she has heard Loxley talking to a man with whom he can strike a dishonest deal.- Written by don @ minifie-1
With Great Britain now at war, stories of atrocities in Belgium dominate the headlines. Agnes' brother George enlists as do several other of Selfridge's employees. Harry gets an idea: with so many employees enlisting in the army, he guarantees their job on their return. He calls them Selfridge's brigade. He also makes Henri Leclair his deputy. Rose, Delphine Day and Lady Mae organize a charitable fund-raiser at the store by selling Belgian chocolates. Lord Loxley begins to profit from his position on the military procurement board. Victor is now head of the family after the death of his uncle and faces having to keep his promise about the family restaurant.- Written by garykmcd
