The John Lewis Partnership has announced it will not reopen eight John Lewis shops to secure the business’s long-term future and respond to customer needs. It will now enter into consultation with affected partners. This announcement comes as the final wave of shop reopenings is confirmed. The total number of reopened John Lewis shops next month will be 42.

A further nine shops in Aberdeen, Ashford, Brent Cross, Chichester, Oxford, Peterborough, Reading, Sheffield and White City Westfield will reopen on July 30. Leicester will also reopen when the local lockdown for the city is lifted. The Swindon outlet will also reopen on July 30, according to a company press release.

Approximately 1,300 partners across the eight shops will now enter into consultation.

If redundancies are confirmed, every effort would be made to find new roles where possible for employees who wish to remain within the partnership. Opportunities could include transferring to local Waitrose shops or working for johnlewis.com and waitrose.com as they continue to grow.
