John Lewis Partnership Archives

Share your memories

The Archives team has joined with the Partnership Retirement Service to encourage retired Partners and others to contribute to a new website, the Waitrose Memory Store. Your contributions in the form of articles, comments and/or photos, would be very welcome!

Waitrose celebrated its 75th anniversary of joining the Partnership in October 2012. To mark this occasion, the Partnership Archives team has joined with the Retirement Service to encourage all Partners, and particularly retired Partners, to contribute to a new website. Like the existing Memory Stores for Trewins and Robert Sayle, the Waitrose Memory Store collects and displays the memories of everyone who remembers working or shopping in a Waitrose branch over the years. It contains images, interviews, oral recordings, documents and memorabilia associated with our business, past and present, and is available on the internet for everyone to enjoy.

Look out those old photos

“So look out all those old photos of yourself and your colleagues, along with branches past and present, and we will be delighted to add them to the site over the coming year.”
