John Lewis considers closing more stores
John Lewis is ดาวน์โหลด slotxo considering more store closures as it tries to cut costs and adapt to the boom in online shopping.
In what would be another blow for the High Street, the BBC understands up to eight department stores may remain permanently closed.
That would be on top of the eight stores it shut last year, which included two small travel hub shops at Heathrow and St Pancras.
That could leave it with 34 stores, down from its current total of 42.
John Lewis has declined to comment on the potential move, which was first reported by the Sunday Times.
Any closures would be another blow to the high street and town centres, which are already grappling with the fall-out from the collapse of Debenhams and Sir Philip Green's Arcadia empire.
The rise in internet shopping, exacerbated by various lockdown measures amid coronavirus, has forced John Lewis to rethink how many stores it needs.
