John Lewis Partnership Memory Store
The John Lewis Partnership Memory Store (www.jlpmemorystore.org.uk/) is free for anyone to join and is a community initiative created and run by the Heritage Centre team. It sits alongside our first Memory Store but gives more detail about specific areas of our businesses, Partners, events and activities in our branches, manufacturing units, distribution and amenity centres.
Compiled by a group of retired Partners at our Heritage Centre in Cookham, this project catalogues and displays photos, reminiscences and interviews with those who remember the business in days gone by. The site illustrates what we have already collected and will, we hope, encourage everyone from Partners to customers to enter their own comments and images about the shops and other areas of the business which will become a valuable part of the history of tomorrow.
The site will build into a useful community resource which can be used by anyone with an interest in our shops or the Partners who work there. Written memories or photographs can be simply added to the site and there is also the facility to add a comment letting others know why it is something special to you.
With easy to follow instructions it is simple to add your comments or great fun just to browse through the pages that are already on the site.
