Pop-Up Shops in John Lewis

Walker Greenbank PLC (AIM: WGB), the luxury interior furnishings group, announces that the retailer John Lewis yesterday launched two pop-up shops in its flagship Oxford Street store in London to showcase products from the Company’s Scion, Harlequin and Morris & Co brands.

 

Each pop-up features wallpaper and textile collections from each of the brands along with a diverse range of licensed products such as bedding, towelling, tableware, cushions, rugs and gifting. It marks the first time that the brands’ products have been displayed together at John Lewis – usually they are displayed in the store’s respective departments.

 

The products on display include newly launched ranges alongside some of the brands’ best-selling product lines. Highlights of the new collections include Noukku from Scion, Anthozoa from Harlequin and Morris & Co’s Pure Morris.

 

A series of events for customers are planned at the pop-ups including a design demonstration by one of Harlequin’s designers, live wallpaper-hanging sessions and a Morris & Co upholstery demonstration.

 

The Scion and Harlequin pop-up will be at John Lewis’s Oxford Street store until 15 April 2017 and the Morris & Co. pop-up until 29 April 2017.

 

John Sach, Walker Greenbank’s Chief Executive, commented: “We’re delighted that John Lewis is showcasing our Scion, Harlequin and Morris & Co brands in its flagship store on Oxford Street. We’re particularly excited by the way that our core wallpapers and textiles are being displayed alongside an extensive range of related licensed products through the shop-within-a-shop concept. We look forward to working with John Lewis to welcome customers to the pop-ups and to introduce them to our brands.”
