John Lewis scoops retail award

John Lewis & Partners was among the prestigious award winners at the Retail Week Awards, held in London last Thursday (March 14). The trophy was awarded to the department store for its experience-focused opening at Westfield White City in West London.

Other housewares stockists that came away with trophies included The Hut Group, which picked up the award for International Growth Retailer, and the supermarket Aldi, as well as Ocado Technology, which was awarded The Digital Pioneer Award.

Retail Week’s George MacDonald commented on the event: “There was a renewed sense of purpose among this year’s winners about what the sector should be doing for the community and for its customers and that is what set them apart. They are all aspiring to be more meaningful; they are striving for good.”
