Co-op to replace Baker Street Waitrose

29 June, 2018 — By Tom Foot


THE Co-op has agreed to buy the “Little Waitrose” in Marylebone.

The John Lewis Partnership announced the store, on the Baker Street junction with Robert Adam Street, would be sold off along with four others in city centres.

Ben Stimson, Waitrose retail director, said: “The sale of these shops is not something we take lightly, but we have accepted offers for them as it is sadly – despite the best efforts of everyone involved – not commercially viable for us to continue trading from them in the long term.”

Stuart Hookins, director of property portfolio and development at the Co-op, said he hoped the new store would help create “stronger communities” by “offering great quality products conveniently”.

Little Waitrose in Camden Town is also closing.
