John Lewis to open store in Heathrow’s Terminal 2

RBR Staff Writer Published 02 July 2013

John Lewis, the employee-owned department store chain, is planning to open a new outlet in Heathrow’s Terminal 2 in June 2014.

The store will occupy 3,600ft² of retail space and will offer the best of home, fashion, gifting and seasonal ranges and will showcase many of its own-brand products, designer collaborations and exclusives.

The shop will be located on the top floor of the departure lounge and will be immediately visible to passengers as they exit security.

Heathrow's retail director Muriel Zingraff-Shariff said, "We're excited to bring John Lewis to Heathrow and share this much loved British retail brand with our international audience."

John Lewis managing director Andy Street said this move is part of the company's strategy to expand internationally.

"We recently made clear our ambition to further develop our online presence internationally in addition to increasing our international wholesale business. This opportunity at Heathrow perfectly complements and enhances these initiatives."
