Lewis’s to close

After more than 150 years Liverpool’s only independent department store is to close down. Another victim of Liverpool One? I will really miss the shop window displays, especially at Christmas.

  1. The saddest thing is that this great old lady will be replaced by Primark or some such. I have noted that many of the old Woolworths stores are being/have been taken over by 99p Stores. Is this really what the British public and the ever popular tourist want? hmmm

    • I think there are plans to do more with the building and surrounding area then to let it simply become another cheap shopping outlet. I can only hope any development will treat the old building with the respect it deserves.
