John Lewis

The familiar name of the John Lewis Partnership is successfully branded as the UK’s favourite retailer and is the market leader as a group embracing John Lewis, Waitrose, and Greenbee.

Launched as a single draper’s shop in Oxford Street by John Lewis in 1864, the business made the first move to partnership with the creation of its first staff council in 1919.

Today, it has some 70,000 partners who share the profits and benefits. The business has grown to include 29 John Lewis shops and over 230 branches of Waitrose.

It has progressively updated its offer with a website and delivery service.

John Lewis is committed to continued expansion and the use of new technology. Building a new automated distribution centre at Milton Keynes was key to this strategy. WT Parker’s custom-built system worked seamlessly as if it were in fact ‘off the shelf’.
