John Lewis to reopen London store after £14m revamp

RBR Staff Writer Published 21 July 2015

Upmarket department store chain John Lewis is to reopen its flagship store in Oxford Street, London, after a £14m revamp.

The revamped store with several new features will be opened in September this year.

After the eight-month refurbishment programme, the new 94,000ft2 home department store spans over two floors and will have 24 rooms including a new sleep room, where shoppers can design their bedroom.

John Lewis said that the revamped store will be the biggest home shop in the UK with a wide portfolio of home products.

John Lewis Home division buying director Christine Kasoulis said: "We are the only retailer with the breadth and depth in choice and price, brand and own brand mix to cover the everyday to the design classics.

"Within Oxford Street we will be able to give customers access to the newest trends and products in home design, and exclusive brands and design collections from both the UK and internationally."

Meanwhile, John Lewis is planning to charge £2 for online orders below £30.
