Untitled[edit]

I cut the following from the Wikipedia Harry Gordon Selfridge article as irrelevant and thought its information would already be in Galen Weston but it is not and as the number of generations seems contradicted I have parked the cutting here that those who know and care may tussle with it. The three articles Selfridges, Harry Gordon Selfridge, and Galen Weston need to be made consistent. Perhaps all history of the store should appear only as a link on Harry Gordon Selfridge.

"The Weston family wealth started with a bakery his great-grandfather - a cockney transplanted to Canada - started. Through the years, the dough has risen: Weston is reputedly worth $6 billion CAD. His last big deal prior to buying Selfridges was a $1 billion USD buyout of BestFoods bakeries from Unilever in 2001"--SilasW 12:05, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

I think it's important to mention the IRA attempted kidnapping in the 80s.
