LAYOFFS AT SELFRIDGES: Selfridges might be getting a boost from its centenary celebrations and from a weaker pound, but it’s clearly not immune to the economic downturn. The store has laid off 13 of its 400-strong head office staff, including communications director Christine Watts, who joined in 2005. Her responsibilities have been assumed by Sally Scott, Selfridges’ marketing director. “This consultation was introduced to ensure Selfridges continues to be strong and efficient,” a Selfridges spokesman said. “This is an ongoing business goal.” According to a source, more layoffs may be in the pipeline. The store declined comment.
