Shoppers looking to purchase the most pedigree of pooches and felines will no longer be able to pick up a pet in as the department store is set to close its famous “Pet Kingdom.”

The store’s new owners, the Qatari royal family’s fund Qatar Holding, who bought Harrods from Mohammed Al Fayed for £1.5 billion in May 2010, have decided to close the fourth-floor department as part of the store’s £200 million refurbishment, and will replace the pets with an expansion on their already extensive womenswear collection.

A spokesman for the store said: “The Pet Kingdom department will close to make way for further exciting planned developments in our womenswear offering.”
