Sat between John Lewis Cribbs Causeway and John Lewis Reading on the M4 corridor, Swindon was a town that the Partnership had long been looking to populate. With a large catchment area of shoppers all eager to for the John Lewis experience, to fill the gap between Bristol and Reading was an easy decision to make.After extensive research a suitable site had been ascertained by May 2010, and a John Lewis At home was confirmed for Swindon. Soon afterwards construction began, the aim being to open the store by the end of the year. It would be a tight squeeze, but a with a dedicated team approach, it was definitely achievable.
