John Lewis confirms shop reopening plans
The John Lewis department store chain has confirmed its reopening plans for shops in England and Wales when lockdown restrictions are eased on 12 April.
In addition, the retailer is planning to relaunch its newly refurbished Edinburgh store on 14 May and reopen its Glasgow shop from 26 April subject to Government guidance.
The restart plans will include giving customers access to changing rooms, children’s shoe fitting and in-person nursery appointments, as well as providing home design advice, personal styling appointments and technology support.
Next day click and collect services will also resume in John Lewis shops to add to existing locations in Waitrose, Co-op and Booths stores.
Pippa Wicks, executive director at John Lewis, said: “We’re looking forward to reuniting customers with the joy of physical shopping, along with the excitement of our stores whilst also introducing our customers to stylish new products at prices they won’t expect. We want to make sure the shopping experience is as fun and inspiring as it’s ever been, while also ensuring that our customers and partners feel safe.”
Last month the retailer announced that eight of its shops would not reopen after lockdown. The stores identified for closure included four ‘At Home’ shops in Ashford, Basingstoke, Chester and Tunbridge Wells and four department stores in Aberdeen, Peterborough, Sheffield and York.
