John Lewis announced plans this week to open a new shop in Oxford. The flexible format department store will include fashion, home and consumer electronics, all housed in a new city centre shop. It will join the Partnership's other shops in the area, where Waitrose already has a strong presence.
It's a new era for Waitrose Milton Keynes, too. The supermarket - which has traded in the town for five decades - has just relocated to its bigger, better new Oakgrove location.
Also this week, Waitrose announced a major new sponsorship deal with England Cricket.
