John Lewis reveals details of £24m Edinburgh revamp

John Lewis has announced its plans for a £24m refurbishment and investment plan for its Edinburgh store, focusing on improving shopper experience and expanding the store space.

The 160,000 sq ft store in the St James Centre will have an extra shopping floor added into the space, as well as a new cafe and a dedicated tech area, as well as a reconfigured beauty hall and a new entrance.

Work began on the store last year, and will be largely completed by the end of April. The St James Centre itself is also being redeveloped – improvements are set to be completed in 2020.

Barry Blamire, head of branch, said: ”This is one of the biggest refurbishments the shop has seen in its 43 years and an incredibly exciting moment in our history. As the retail landscape changes, we adapt and evolve our shops to ensure we continue to meet our customers’ needs and expectations.”
