'Never Knowingly Undersold' has been our unique promise to our customers for over 75 years, on quality, service and value. You can trust that we will always stock the best quality products, responsibly sourced. We work hard with all our suppliers to ensure they pay full attention to the well-being of their employees, their communities and the environment in which they're based. This includes using sustainable materials and methods wherever possible, and trading ethically at all times. Our staff (Partners) are highly trained to offer helpful, impartial advice on all products and we provide an excellent after-sales and a great choice of expert services from delivery to installation. We set highly competitive prices for all our products; If we find a national high street competitor offering a better nationwide price for the same individual product, sold with the same service conditions, we'll lower our price to match in all our shops and on our website, including when a competitor is having a sale.
Our John Lewis full-line department stores each typically stock more than 350,000 lines. At JL Oxford Street and Bluewater there’s also a John Lewis Foodhall from Waitrose while Southampton and Watford offer a little Waitrose under one roof.

We believe in making effective products from fresh, organic* fruit and vegetables, the finest essential oils and safe synthetics. We invent our own products and fragrances. We make them fresh by hand using little or no preservative or packaging, using only vegetarian ingredients, and tell you when they were made. We believe in buying ingredients only from companies that do not commission tests on animals and in testing our products on humans. We believe in happy people making happy soap, putting our faces on our products and making our mums proud. We believe in long candlelit baths, sharing showers, massage, filling the world with perfume and in the right to make mistakes, lose everything and start again. We believe our products are good value, that we should make a profit and that the customer is always right. * We also believe words like fresh and organic have honest meaning beyond marketing.
