As of 2005 the partnership operates 27 department stores. Most of these trade as John Lewis but some trade under other names such as Peter Jones (department store), Robert Sayle, Knight & Lee and Caleys. The stores are in a mixture of city centre and regional shopping centre locations. They are generally the largest or second largest department store in their local market. The flagship Oxford Street store remains the largest John Lewis outlet in the UK. The stores are moderately upmarket and are perceived as a bastion of the British middle class.

The partnership in an investor in and an operational partner of the Ocado internet grocery business, which supplies Waitrose brand food.
