John Lewis Cheltenham store hit by delays

The opening date of a new John Lewis store in Cheltenham is being pushed back to 2018 due to “preliminary project matters”.

The 115,000 sq ft full-line department store was set to open next year, taking over the entire Beechwood Shopping Centre.

Retailers moving out of the centre, which closed in February this year, included Next, Debenhams, Evans and Animal.

The new development will cost £30m and will create 250 jobs.

A spokeswoman for John Lewis said the firm and Blackmore, which owns the building, remain “fully committed” to delivering the revamped Beechwood development in Cheltenham.

“We are currently dealing with preliminary project matters and will announce our revised timeline in due course,” she said.
