Today’s post is about something I have been getting more and more excited about as the year has gone on, the opening of the first John Lewis store in Essex! Back in 2014 it was announced that the company would be opening a store in my home town of Chelmsford (technically a city since it gained the status back in 2012), and back then I never imagined what a huge project it would be.
John Lewis forms part of the new Bond Street development, which is made up of shopping, food and entertainment facilities. As well as John Lewis (every time I type the name I get excited at the idea of all the new make up counters I will have access to!), there will also be other popular stores such as Cath Kidson, Joules, Jack Wills, L’Occitane, Tag Huer and many more. Restaurant wise, imagine how the blogger in me reacted when I found out we were getting a Bills! That’s right! My diet is screwed as there is also a Byron Burger, Coast to Coast, Las Iguanas and much more.
As well as eating and shopping, a new boutique cinema will be opening in December, which will offer table service! I went to something similar in New Orleans so can’t wait to have something locally.
The opening date for John Lewis is next Thursday 29th September. The date is in my diary and I will be back with a full report on everything!
