John Lewis is hoping to open its fourth outlet in the English capital with a new store planned for Westfield London in Shepherd’s Bush.
The department store chain is close to signing a deal at an extension of the west London shopping centre according to The Telegraph.
It is understood that the retailer is keen to open at the site but a final decision will be taken at a board meeting for the John Lewis Partnership scheduled for next month.
Westfield has outline planning permission for work to begin on a £1bn scheme located next to the existing shopping centre that includes 550,000 sq ft of retail, led by a department store, along with 1,500 homes, restaurants and offices.
It would also provide the retailer, which has 39 stores across the UK, with its first store in the area.
John Lewis could not be reached for comment.
