John Lewis plans £7mn revamp at Kingston outlet

Feb '13
John Lewis is planning a £7million refurbishment and upgrade of the ground floor of its 150,000 sq ft Kingston shop to modernise and transform the shopping environment for customers.

The refurbishment will begin in May 2013, with an additional 7,000 sq ft of ground floor selling space to be created primarily by infilling two wells above the Waitrose store in the shop’s basement and further conversion of current back of house space.

The refurbishment will see a transformation and expansion of existing departments including beauty, fashion accessories and gifting. These departments will be fitted with the latest design concepts and will benefit from an extended offer of brands and product range. In addition, the Wood Street entrance will be refurbished with a dedicated space given to Waitrose inside the lobby.

Jenny Tomley, managing director of John Lewis Kingston said: “This investment emphasises our commitment to giving our customers an enticing and exciting shopping experience. The enhancements will make the shop one of our regional flagships, with a high-quality interior including innovative displays and exciting new brands which we know our customers will love.”

John Lewis and Waitrose Kingston will both remain open throughout the refurbishment and work will be carefully managed to minimise any impact on customers. The upgrade is due for completion in October 2013.
