Gallery: MP officially opens new John Lewis at home/Waitrose store in Ipswich

IPSWICH’s new Waitrose/John Lewis at home store was formally opened by town MP Ben Gummer this morning.

The new double store on Futura Park - the former Crane site on the east of the town.

Staff from both stores gathered for the opening and customers began gathering an hour before the doors opened.

The stores’ opening has caused heavy traffic in Nacton Road in both directions between Nacton Interchange and the Landseer Road junction.
