About us

Welcome to the Waitrose Memory Store site.

Waitrose joined the John Lewis Partnership on 1st October 1937.  In those days retailing was totally different to the way we shop today.  We hope this site, will show you more about the business both as it was and how it operates today.

We hope you will enjoy not only reading what others have added but also by contributing yourself to ensure we capture the essence and culture of John Lewis.
