John Lewis is opening stores with new measures to ensure convenience and safety. From December 2 the department store will be welcoming Britons back.
In addition to more than 900 Click & Collect locations available across the UK, customers can also collect their Click & Collect orders from 15 Waitrose and 16 John Lewis car parks where they can simply stay in their car while a Partner brings their purchases out to them.
Self check-in for Click & Collect is also available at 98 Waitrose shops where customers can check in to collect their parcel via their personal device.
To help spread footfall over a longer period so customers can continue to shop safely, John Lewis shops will have the option to extend trading hours in the run-up to Christmas to give them greater flexibility.
Customers are advised to check the times of individual shops online at JohnLewis.com.
Pippa Wicks, Executive Director, John Lewis says: “We’re excited to reopen our shops in England and we’re looking forward to welcoming back our customers to help them make this Christmas extra special.
“Our priority is to make sure that they are able to shop as safely and easily as they can, whether in our shops or online while continuing to be delighted and inspired by our Christmas offer.
“While the nation is famous for its love of queuing, we want to make sure that as temperatures drop, our customers have the chance to do their Christmas shopping in a comfortable, convenient way, however they choose to shop with us.
“Our Partners have been busy making our shops look and feel as festive as ever and we hope that they will bring our customers some Christmas cheer as they prepare for the festive season.”
Tesco is encouraging Britons to shop online as much as possible.
It said: “To help people shop in-store at times that are quieter or more convenient, we’ve extended the opening hours in many of our shops.”
The supermarket is also no longer packing food shopping into carrier bags.
If customers can’t get their desired slot, they can Click+Collect their orders for just £1.50.
