John Lewis to take off at Heathrow

John Lewis has announced plans to open a store at Heathrow’s Terminal 2 next year.

The retailer is investing more than £1m in a 3,600 sq ft shop at the airport, which will open on June 4. 

John Lewis Heathrow will showcase many of its own-brand products, designer collaborations and exclusives and will create 40 new jobs.

Andy Street, managing director at John Lewis, said the move was a “huge step forward” in developing the retailer’s international strategy.

He added: “This new opening gives us access to one of the most concentrated, valuable and influential markets in the world. We recently made clear our ambition to further develop our online presence internationally in addition to increasing our international wholesale business. This opportunity at Heathrow perfectly complements and enhances these initiatives.”

John Lewis currently delivers to 33 countries outside the UK and Ireland, which equates to 75% of Terminal 2 destinations. The retailer is also expanding its international wholesale business developing a specific offer focused on bed, bath and tableware in partnership with four Shinsegae department stores in South Korea, with plans to roll out the offer to more of their stores.

The new Terminal 2, to be known as ‘Terminal 2 : The Queen’s Terminal’, is the latest phase of the five year, £11bn transformation of the airport.
