John Lewis & Partner

John Lewis & Partners (commonly known as John Lewis) is a British brand of high-end department stores operating throughout the United Kingdom, with concessions also located in Ireland.

The brand sells general merchandise as part of the employee-owned mutual organisation known as the John Lewis Partnership, the largest co-operative in the United Kingdom. It was created by Spedan Lewis, son of the founder, John Lewis, in 1929.

Buchanan Galleries shopping centre

In 2022, plans were announced to demolish the Buchanan Galleries shopping centre, built in 1999, and create new streets and a mixed use development comprising residential, retail and business properties.

Next door to the Buchanan Galleries, just to the north west, is the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, which includes the home of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. It opened in 1990.


Buchanan Galleries shopping centre is in the middle of Glasgow city centre, a city recognised as one of the top retail destinations in the UK. We’re home to John Lewis in Glasgow, and have over 80 of the best retail names under our roof, from retail giants to small independents.

We’re the best shopping centre in Glasgow – but we like to think of ourselves as more than that. We’re part of the community, and so we try to do our bit not only in Glasgow, but throughout west central Scotland.

We do this in a number of different ways. We work with charities, to help fundraising and awareness. We also try to do our bit for the environment.

Buchanan Galleries is owned by Landsec and is managed by Savills.
