Clarification - John Lewis haberdashery department

Thursday 10 November 2016


Following recent speculation, John Lewis would like to make clear that we have no, nor have we ever had, plans to close or downgrade our haberdashery departments. 

In the last five weeks, we've opened new shops in Chelmsford and Leeds with already popular haberdashery departments, both of which include a meeting area for local crafting groups.

We would like to reassure our customers that haberdashery is woven into the fabric of our business and remains at the heart of John Lewis.
