John Lewis ANYDAY Range

The UK’s most trusted retailer John Lewis have recently launched the ANYDAY range. Whether you rent or own, have a compact solo pad or a multi-functional family home, ANYDAY can transform your humble abode, thanks to its great design of stylish and good quality products.

The range of products are competitively priced spanning Homewares, Technology, Baby Care & Baby Clothing.

These images are from the ANYDAY Pop-Up shop at Peter Jones (part of the John Lewis Partnership) in Sloane Square.

From a VM perspective, the Pop Up Shop is clear and concise and the staff were happy to guide me through the ranges that can be found throughout the store. I do very much like the VM touches such as the wooden ticket holders and the various wooden blocks on the fixtures.

Eataly – London

If you are an avid fan of Italian food and wine then head to the new Eataly Food Store situated just outside London’s Liverpool Street station.

This two floor 42,000 square foot store combines hospitality and retail, with restaurants, bars, coffee shop and an Italian deli. Just past the coffee shop is La Via Del Dolce (The sweet shop). This is well stocked to cater for the sweet tooth in us, but I couldn’t help thinking that it was more Arabic looking with the fixtures and lighting than Italian.

Upstairs is the true shoppers delight with an abundance of wines, pasta, cheeses, meats and zero waste products. I visited on a Saturday and the store was rammed with customers, which is good for business, so it was a struggle to browse everything leisurely.

It is a great place to meet someone for coffee or stock up on your favourite Italian food but coming from a Visual Merchandising background, I felt that it lacked retail theatre.
