Fun celebrations and a new range a celebrate landmark anniversary.
Which will you choose – John or Lewis?
To celebrate the 150th anniversary of a business that has grown from a humble draper’s shop opened in 1864, to the £4 billion international, award-winning business it is today; John Lewis Cheadle is pleased to announce plans for a series of commemorative events.
Kicking off on 3rd May, the shop on Wilmslow Road, will host a number of activities such as:
- Children’s treasure hunt
- Balloon modeller
- Live music
As part of the 150th celebrations John Lewis will be working in partnership with Barnardo’s. John Lewis Cheadle has chosen to support the Benchill Sure Start Children’s Centre in Wythenshaw.
Exclusive anniversary range
Collaborating with some of Britain’s most loved brands and designers, John Lewis Cheadle are offering in store and online a carefully edited collection which has been produced exclusively for the anniversary.
The electrical department has teamed up with the iconic Henry Hoover brand to offer the opportunity to buy a John or a Lewis Hoover, and in the Home department their own design studio is paying homage to the brand’s design history by taking key heritage prints from the archives and using them on new modern products. ‘
The week will also see the launch of a series of national events, including a fantastic roof garden for it’s Oxford Street store in London.
Working with Tony Woods, Royal Horticultural Society National Young Designer of the Year, and John Lewis’ own gardeners, one of the capital’s largest urban rooftops has been transformed.
To celebrate 150 years of John Lewis, we’ve got a John or a Lewis Hoover to give away to one lucky reader.
They retail at £129.95 so this really is a fantastic prize (you can read the product details here).

Me – It would have to be Lewis after the author of one of my favourite children’s books, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe by CS Lewis.
