John Lewis today announced that it will open a four-level department store at the capital’s Westfield London shopping centre in 2017.
The 230,000sq ft department store is John Lewis’s first West London branch and will stock over 350,000 lines including home and technology.
It will anchor the planned Westfield London extension, which will feature 600,000sq ft of additional retail and 1,500 homes.
Michael Gutman, Westfield’s European managing director said: “John Lewis is the most requested store at Westfield London and we are delighted that we will soon be able to deliver on this for our customers.
“The new store will be another huge attraction to Westfield London and will become an important centrepiece of the massive regeneration taking place in the White City opportunity area, with the creation of thousands of new homes and jobs.”
John Lewis managing director Andy Street commented: “Our business in London has strengthened significantly over recent years. It is therefore right that we now move to open in Westfield London and bring our offer to customers in the west of the city.”
