Selfridges Birmingham branch stays closed after tragic incident

Jan 11, 2022

The Bullring, Birmingham branch of luxury department store Selfridges has stayed closed on Tuesday following an incident on Monday evening in which a man died. It’s due to reopen on Wednesday.


The man fell from one of the upper floors shortly after 7pm and paramedics and a trauma doctor were unable to save his life.

Selfridges said in a statement: “Following an incident in-store last night, the emergency services attended and we have been assisting them with their enquiries. Selfridges Birmingham will remain closed today, reopening on Wednesday 12th January.

The store has a large open area inside with several floors of galleries overlooking it. That’s a popular design concept for major department stores and some malls.

It’s unclear at present whether the fall was a tragic accident or deliberate but the local police confirmed that the death is not being treated as suspicious and will be referred to the coroner.
