John Lewis opens first railway station shop

Wednesday, 15 October 2014
Department store John Lewis has opened its first railway station shop at St Pancras International. The new format for John Lewis will allow customers to pick up orders made on the department store’s website, as well as shop an edited section of its products.

The 3,000 square foot shop offers an edited selection of fashion brands including Ted Baker, Orla Keily and Barbour, in addition to electronics, gifts, beauty and home products. But the biggest draw for the retailer’s first transport hub is allowing customers to take advantage of its click and collection services during their daily commute.

Maggie Porteous, director of selling at John Lewis said: “Our customers show us that 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.”

Wendy Spinks, commercial director of HS1 Ltd, owners of St Pancras International, added: “With the same proud Victorian heritage as St Pancras International, it is fitting that John Lewis has chosen to open its first train station store at one of London's most historic and well-loved terminals.

“We have no doubt that the Click and Collect service will be a big hit with the 48 million people who visit the station every year and we are proud to welcome one of Britain's best-loved retailers to join the broad range of retail available at St Pancras.”

The store is open from 7.30am-9pm Monday to Saturday and 9am-7pm on Sundays and offers next day collection. It joins a network of 31 department stores, 10 John Lewis at home shops and a shop in Heathrow Terminal 2.
