What we do

We strive to be a better way of doing business. This commitment is driven by our purpose, our Partnership values and our business strategy.



John Lewis began trading over 150 years ago in 1864 on London's Oxford Street, and is a leading omni-channel retailer in the UK with 34 John Lewis shops and a growing online business - johnlewis.com. We also offer a range of financial products from Home Insurance to Foreign Currency and our credit card, the Partnership Card through John Lewis Finance.

At John Lewis, we are proud to have always been a place where people go to celebrate the big life milestones.

Now, people are bringing joy to each moment – not just the big days, but the everydays too.  Now we have a new promise to our customers, to be there for all life's moments.

Waitrose has its own farm which is part of the Leckford Estate in Hampshire and embodies Waitrose principles of good food, good environmental practice and fair behaviour.

Leckford Farm produces arable crops including high quality bread-making wheat which is used to make a range of Leckford label flour, as well as apples, pears, apple juice, cider, free range eggs, chestnut mushrooms and free range chickens to Waitrose shops.

On the estate you'll also find a Farm Shop, the Longstock Park Nursery and Longstock Park Water Garden, all of which are open to the public.
