And that's July done. Hope you've enjoyed the glimpses into the various Christmas press shows - we'll keep an eye out for more whilst we wait for the 100-day-to-go mark on September 16th. It isn't long until we go full-tilt one more time...

Selfridges may have won the publicity war this time around, but their token effort really is out-shone by what Harrods have been quietly doing.

Although Selfridges grabbed the headlines, whilst Harrods kept their Christmas shop quiet, Selfridges has kept the habit of the past few years by only having a token set of racks by the escalators.

Being in the basement, Harrods' Christmas shop feels rather cavernous, as it sprawls around the floor with low ceilings and rather narrow walkways.

Harrods' Christmas shop is far from full-blown - we're really talking about gifts for tourists to buy, but it's always pleasing to see a rack of baubles.

The press lied to you :)

Selfridges may have begun their Christmas shop on Monday, but Harrods beat them to it by a few days! Harrods' Christmas shop is in their basement - a temporary home as the store is being renovated. It sprawls pleasingly, and is larger than it looks at first sight.

Nick's taking his camera down to Selfridges and Harrods tonight to check out their Christmas shops. They must be pretty small at this stage, but it's worth a look. Meanwhile, here's how Selfridges' Christmas shop opening was covered. (H/T @Graeme Quinn)

There have been very very few Christmas Press Show write-ups this year, with a few unique ones hidden behind a pay-wall. Very odd - could we be looking at another dialled-back Run-Up this year?
