Shopping at John Lewis, are we? Very fancy, indeed. We’ve got some vouchers which which will make shopping at John Lewis a lot cheaper. They might have the Royal Warrant from the Queen herself, but that doesn’t mean they have to have Queenly prices.
One of the British high street’s greatest stalwarts, John Lewis is know for its quality and its huge range of products. Not to mention their big budget Christmas adverts, which are always guaranteed to go viral and make us all cry during the X Factor ad break.
Stocking everything from womenswear to HD TVs, gorgeous furniture to kitchen appliances, John Lewis has become a lot like Amazon in that you could probably fill your entire house, wardrobe and bathroom cabinet with items from their beautifully stocked, very full shelves. Their motto and policy is “Never Knowingly Undersold”, which dates back to 1925, and it means that they’ll refund the price difference if you find the same item cheaper elsewhere. This is a policy they’ve maintained ever since.
On top of that, you can get really amazing discount codes right here. You can get 30% off sofas, get £100 off selected John Lewis TVs (which include Samsung, LG, Song and much more), and free delivery on everything if you spend over £50 online.
Out of all the high street department stores, John Lewis really wins at Christmas. M&S and Debenhams will release their own glossy Christmas TV campaigns, but they never beat John Lewis when it comes to heartfelt, memorable campaigns. When their campaign goes live, they trend on Twitter immediately, becoming big news throughout the UK. Even the weeks running up to November are full of speculation and bated breath, as the press and the Twitterati start to anticipate their Christmas TV ad.
Alongside their Christmas TV ad, they’re demonstrating their status as ‘The Ultimate Christmas Retailer’ by introducing a Christmas tree decorating service for December 2016. A John Lewis ‘tree stylist’ costs £450 (deep breath) and is available by appointment from their Oxford Street and Sloane Square stores. They’ll give you all kinds of Christmas tree decorating advice, and their styles range from “basic to extravagant”, apparently. Although, for £450 you would hope you were going to get the luxury option.
If you’re okay decorating your own Christmas tree, thank you very much. You can still rely on John Lewis for all of your Christmas gifts. In fact, our various voucher codes could really help you out with that one. Who isn’t a fan of gadgets, lovely kitchenware and fancy pyjamas under their tree?
Image is a big thing for John Lewis – their brand is associated with quality, Britishness, and good old-fashioned value. They demonstrate this with the ethos of The John Lewis Partnership – a staff benefits scheme that sees all of their staff (whether they’re in head office or folding underwear on the shop floor) receive profit share options in the John Lewis company. If John Lewis succeeds (which it will, let’s face it) they benefit directly from it.
Staff welfare is what they’re famous for too. Up until 1994, John Lewis would remain closed on Mondays so they could give all of their staff a full two-day weekend every week. That’s pretty unique for a retailer. They’re also aiming for wages that are higher than the living wage by 2020, something most corporations have approached pretty reluctantly.
They began with an Oxford Street store in 1864 and now they have 42 around the UK and Ireland too. John Lewis isn’t ready to just stay in physical stores, it’s had a significant online presence for a while, and they recently launched their summer accelerator – JLab. Through JLab they gave a £200,000 investment to three ecommerce startups who have lots of potential. With this investment, the startups can build their prototypes and bring their projects to real John Lewis stores to their real customers. Customers just like you!
