John Lewis opened its first railway station shop at St Pancras International in London today, where customers can pick up orders made on the department store’s website during their commute.
The 3,000 sq ft shop offers an edited selection of fashion brands including Ted Baker, Orla Keily and Barbour, in addition to electronics, gifts, beauty and home products.
The store opens from 7.30am-9pm Monday to Saturday and 9am-7pm on Sundays and offers next day collection to St Pancras’s 48 million annual commuters. It joins a network of 31 department stores, 10 John Lewis at Home shops and a shop in Heathrow Terminal 2.
John Lewis’s director of selling Maggie Porteous said: “Our customers show us they want different ways to shop that are most convenient for them. John Lewis St Pancras is our latest shop format innovation to meet our customers evolving needs serving the station’s travellers.”
