Well, with my working knowledge of department stores, and retailing generally, I totally agree, with Tom Hunt and Adam Park, about the ‘snailpace’ of Sheffield City Council’s indecision, on what to do, with John Lewis.
In my opinion, John Lewis needed a total refurbishment at least 40 years ago, as I regarded the store as totally drab and uninspiring, to shoppers, and myself.
Apparently the La Samaritaine department store in the centre of Paris, (the City of Light, no less!) re-opened, after an extensive refurbishment. So why can’t Sheffield do the same?
