JOHN LEWIS HOMEWARE will be sold in Ireland for the first time later this year as part of an agreement with Arnotts.

The two department stores will be joining forces to set up shop alongside Arnotts’ existing range.

The products, ranging from baths to cushions, will be sold from October 6 this year and will also be available online.

In a statement, managing director of Arnotts Donald McDonald said:

We’re delighted to introduce John Lewis own brand Home products to our customers. The new range will enhance Arnotts existing position as the largest and only full line department store in Ireland. We look forward to introducing other exciting new brands to Arnotts over the coming months.

The relatively small section will appear on two floors of Arnotts’ Henry Street store.

John Lewis, which owns more than 40 stores across the United Kingdom, currently employs around 91,000 full-time staff.

The Selfridges Group, who also have Brown Thomas as part of their portfolio in Ireland, took ownership of the store in November 2015.

The Arnotts Group, which is in charge of Arnotts as well as Boyers Department Store, was acquired by Noel Smyth’s Fitzwilliam Finance Partners last year.

The takeover was heralded as ‘a vote of confidence for Arnotts and for the Irish retail sector’.
