John Lewis “a new shopping landmark for Edinburgh”
John Lewis’s Edinburgh store will open on 14 May after a multi-million pound refurbishment.
The retailer described the store as “a new shopping landmark for Edinburgh” and said the renovation is an important part of its strategy to invest in its existing estate, “creating inspiring spaces to showcase our products, experiences and services”.
The shop, which is located within the new St James Quarter – one of the UK’s largest regeneration projects, boasts a new range of services and experiences, including a 3,000 square feet ‘World of Design’ hub to provide home design inspiration and advice to customers.
The renovation also includes a new large electricals department which will make shopping for fridges, cookers and washing machines “a seamless and sensory experience”.
Barry Blamire, Head of Branch for John Lewis Edinburgh, said: “We are so excited to be opening once again and welcoming customers into our refurbished shop. The past year has shown just how much our customers rely on our Partners for that much needed advice and guidance.
“The new look store has been designed as a hub of inspiration, curation, convenience and personal advice.”
The shop will also pay tribute to the City of Edinburgh with features such as two life-size model stags, an Edinburgh Gin pop-up shop, an interactive Hornby Flying Scotsman model in the Toys department and a Greyfriars Bobby statue.
