John Lewis to permanently close eight department stores in the UK

John Lewis said it will shut two full-size department stores in Birmingham and Watford, four At Home shops in Croydon, Newbury, Swindon and Tamworth, as well as two travel hub outlets at Heathrow and St Pancras. It said the eight shops were already “financially challenged” before the coronavirus pandemic, which has ramped up the shift towards online shopping.
