With 89 sleeps until the big day, John Lewis has opened its Christmas shops at stores across the UK – including Edinburgh’s St James Quarter.

Lisa Cherry, Christmas Buyer at John Lewis, says: “Our Christmas shops will transport customers to a magical place of festive wonder, bursting full of decorating inspiration and gifting ideas.

“The buying and design teams have collaborated to develop six unique and distinct Christmas themes, and we’re introducing Christmas tree workshops in store to help guide and inspire.

“We’ve noticed that customers are definitely starting to shop earlier this year, planning for their traditions with Christmas sales already up 25%.

“This year we’re offering more in store experiences, personalisation and products than ever before from much-loved brands such as Quality Street and Disney.

“We’re also excited to launch our Christmas Markets in seven stores showcasing artisan, handmade products from local businesses.”
