The John Lewis Department store retail group is one of the UK's largest
retail groups in the country with over 25 stores throughout Britain.
The household department store name is synomonous with quality goods & an
outstanding after-sales service so much so that its reputation amongst customers
and suppliers is unparalleled in the UK retail industry and has established
benchmark standards within the industry. The year 2004 proved a highly successful
one for John Lewis not only with the celebration of important group anniversaries
but also for recording a record annual turnover topping £5 billion.
In the mid 1860's John Lewis opened up his first store on Oxford Street,
London and proved highly successful attracting many customers to the branch.
This success soon led to a further store opening and the business became a family
enterprise. In 1929 John Lewis established a new retail relationship
between the company, their workers and their suppliers in the drawing up of
the legal Trust Settlement document marking the beginning of the John Lewis
Partnership. The 'Trust Settlement' and the commitment of all John Lewis
UK department store partners gives the company a wonderful competitive edge.
At very least it has enhanced their reputation amongst both customers and suppliers
and probably accounts for a significant proportion of their success and growth
in the UK retail industry.
The John Lewis department store group is the one of the country's largest
- their shops can be found at the top North of the UK in Aberdeen, Scotland
right down to the South West of England. Stores are mainly located in three
different areas: large cities (such as their original store in London), massive
shopping malls (like the Bridgewater store) and out-of-town retail developments
(for example their Cheshire store in Cheadle). In total the portfolio of John
Lewis UK stores account for 5,000,000 + sq ft of retail space with each
store offering a vast range of choice of clothing, home and garden enabling
them to cater for their UK customers diverse tastes. In fact the John Lewis
range is probably the widest on offer under one roof from any single British
retailer. John Lewis Department stores stock range undergoes constant review
to ensure they consistently follow current trends and lead in new ranges to
be at the cutting edge of fashion. As such John Lewis customers can choose from
a wide variety of styles and range of prices that remain unmatched by any other
UK retailer, coupled with their high standards of quality & competitive
price matching this ensures the continued growth and success of the store chain.
