Jimmy's final act leaves Harry in a state of shock as Wynnstay's press implies the pair were involved in financial irregularities as well as exposing Lady Mae's affair with Jimmy. A beleaguered Gordon forces his father to confront his accusers and lift the embargo, to the Civic's satisfaction, thanks to Jimmy's will, ensuring that the store's anniversary is a success - though Harry's profligacy demands he surrenders the reins to Gordon. Whilst Lady Mae returns to France, Josie is installed as assistant manager, Tilly gets her just rewards, George Towler and his wife celebrate a happy event and Meryl finds romance with display manager Freddy. And for all his apparent defeat the name of Selfridges store remains a century after its opening.
