John Lewis & Partners

In May, John Lewis & Partners Edinburgh re-opened its doors and celebrated the completion of a five-year, multi-million pound refurbishment project. Now, as part of the newly opened St James Quarter, the department store boasts a World of Design home styling hub, men’s and women’s styling studios, a Beauty Society, and an optician, in addition to five floors of the latest in fashion, homeware, beauty and tech. The shopping landmark has also introduced new brands such as Givenchy, Longchamp, Hermes and Jo Malone.

“Having seen the success of previous sculpture trails around the city – and knowing how much they appeal to residents and visitors alike – we can’t wait to be part of Giraffe About Town next summer. This past year or so has been very challenging for our city and we are delighted to be participating in such a celebratory event, joining The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland in encouraging the people of Edinburgh to ‘look up!’”
