John Lewis has announced that its new multi-million pound regional flagship store in Birmingham will open its doors at 10am on Thursday September 24 2015.
The date marks the completion of the 250,000 sq ft department store, a £35 million investment by John Lewis in the city, which will see the retailer reveal a number of brand new retail experiences across its fashion, beauty and home departments.
John Lewis Birmingham will be the anchor tenant of the new Grand Central retail development. Customers will be able to shop more than 350,000 products from the retailer’s full range, including the latest fashion, furniture, homewares, beauty and technology, in a landmark four-storey building in the heart of the city.
Computer terminals will be available throughout the department store to enable customers to browse and purchase products from the johnlewis.com range for next day delivery.
Head of branch at John Lewis Birmingham, Lisa Williams, says: “It is so exciting to be able to announce the opening date of our regional flagship shop. I can’t wait to meet my team of Partners (staff) and start welcoming customers through the doors to what will be our most innovative shop to date.
‘We’ve been so grateful for the support from the community since we announced our plans to open the new shop, and we can’t wait to bring the best John Lewis has to offer to Birmingham on the 24 September.”
Housed in the newly-redeveloped New Street Station, the shop will be one of the most conveniently located department stores in the country. Its station site also ensures that it is ideally located for commuters to collect purchases via johnlewis.com’s Click and Collect service when going to and from the station.
Opening hours for the shop will be 9am-8pm Monday-Saturday, and 11am-5pm Sunday with 10:30-11am browsing time.
