John Lewis - John Lewis.co.uk Information
online store from the UK leading Department Store and worker partnership
JohnLewis.co.uk Company History
The John Lewis Partnership has over a century's retail expertise.
Although JohnLewis.co.uk started in the mid 1860's as a small
family run business in London. It wasn't until the eldest son of
John Lewis (Spendan Lewis) headed the business that the foundations
of the largest and most successful worker co-operative was born.
Since establishing this partnership, with full time employees who
all own a stake in the company, the business has grown in strength.
Financial success has been further cemented by wise acquisitions
and development of the Waitrose grocery chain to the group. Overall
there are over twenty five John Lewis .co.uk department stores
throughout the UK (such as John Lewis Glasgow) as well as
over 130 Waitrose grocery shops/ supermarkets which have contributed
to their highly favourable 2004 company returns with annual turnover
recorded over £5,000,000,000.
