On the 18th October 2018, John Lewis & Partners Cheltenham opened to great fanfare. Featuring the Partnership’s largest personal styling studio (including the first personal styling area for men), brow, nail and blow dry bars as well as services such as private after hours shopping and Shopping List service, Cheltenham is truly an example of a new era for John Lewis & Partners.
Opening with 300 Partners, Cheltenham also opened with 41,000 products over its two floor space. The shop itself was an existing unit which previously housed a Debenhams and the Beechwood shopping centre. Refurbished to reflect our brand identity, the space also retained some of the existing notable features of the building including columns that create a band stand style structure to showcase a seasonal edit of fashion and home products.
When interviewed by The Gazette, Branch Manager, Martin Bundy said of the refurbishment ” It really is special to refurbish something old into something new”.
