Number of John Lewis stores in the United Kingdom (UK) 2009-2019

John Lewis is part of the John Lewis Partnership with department stores, home stores and convenience stores across the United Kingdom. As shown in this graph, in the last 10 years the number of John Lewis stores grew to 51 locations. In addition to John Lewis stores, the Partnership also owns a steady number of Waitrose shops in the UK.

Top of the class

John Lewis is one of the most successful department store businesses in the UK. In the five year period between 2012 and 2017, John Lewis not only increased its share in the market, but also ousted Marks and Spencer as the leader. This is a considerable accomplishment, particularly since department stores and UK high streets have been in dire straits lately.

Online business unbeaten

With online sales channels increasingly gaining hold in retail and the ensuing fall in visitor numbers to physical stores, department stores are changing and adjusting their strategies. John Lewis is among fashion retailers in the UK who recorded growth in like-for-like online sales in 2018. Nevertheless, it fails to impress when compared to the retailer’s online sales performance in the previous years.
