Retailer Reinvention

We are proud that the final phase of our John Lewis Edinburgh project which forms part of the wider St James redevelopment completed last week. A journey that started in 2014 consisted of 3 phases the first two being completed in 2017 followed by a pause period between 2018-2019 which allowed the Developer to complete the Shell & Core work before the final phase fit out works could recommence in 2020.

The works consisted of an extensive refurbishment of the entire store. John Lewis have introduced a number of new retail experiences to attract footfall, these include bespoke personal styling services, ‘World of Design’ where home stylists will offer free drop-in appointments to help customers design an instant home makeover and beauty advisory service.
