British retailer John Lewis is set to open a new store at Westfield Shepherd’s Bush as part of a £1 billion extension of the West London mall and multi-billion pound regeneration of the White City area.
Set for completion in 2017, the four-storey 230,000 sq. ft. branch will cost around £30 million and will create around 600 jobs.
John Lewis has been in negotiation with Westfield bosses for three years. Westfield’s European managing director Michael Gutman said of the news, “John Lewis is the most requested store at Westfield London and we are delighted that we will soon be able to deliver on this for our customers.”
