  • About John Lewis Edinburgh

    John Lewis’s presence in Edinburgh began in 1943 when the Partnership bought the Silk Shop in Frederick Street.

    Following a history of great success which led to the business out-growing several premises, it settled in the largest retail unit that the St. James Centre had to offer, in 1973. The shop has since gone through a £25 million refurbishment, and is fully equipped to meet the needs of 21st century shoppers.

Can’t wait for delivery? Why not try our FREE Click & collect service?

You simply place your online order by 7pm today, and we'll deliver it to your chosen shop for you to collect after 2pm tomorrow. This service is available from all John Lewis shops, and in an increasing number of selected Waitrose branches.

The service is available for most but not all of the items we sell, so please check individual product pages when you place an order. We're unable to accept orders that include items for collection from one of our shops as well as items for delivery, so in these cases, please place two separate orders – one for collection and one for delivery.

Access to customer collections is off Little King Street. Pedestrian access from within the shop is through Kitchenware exit on Level 1 into Little King Street. Designated parking spaces are available outside the collection point and in the St James Centre car park for collection customers only, maximum stay 10 minutes.

Visiting the Click & collect area

Our Click & collect area is shown on the map as the small green rectangle positioned opposite our shop. 'R' indicates reserved car parking spaces for Click & collect customers within the NCP carpark.

Join us for Story Time

Storytelling is one of the first things that a parent will share with their child, and it’s something many of us take for granted. However, for the parents of some of the UK’s most vulnerable children, the first years of their child’s life can be a bewildering time. Growing up, they may not have had the experience of being read to by their own parents.

That’s why we want to use the power of storytelling in our shops and in schools to raise money to help Barnardo’s support those UK children who need it most.

Our storytelling sessions will take place on the following dates:

- 21, 22 June

- 26, 27 July

(Arlene Stuart from Forth 1 breakfast show, 'Boogie in the Morning' will be reading at 11am and 12noon on 26 July)

- 2, 3 August

- 9,10 August

- 16,17 August

- 23,24 August

- 30,31 August

Guest reader

Story Time will get off to a great start as Nick Sharratt, illustrator and author of children's books will be reading to us on 21 June
