John Lewis is to merge its home improvement businesses

John Lewis & Partners is to merge its home improvement businesses Home Solutions and Opun as part of a push to “create a truly differentiated home improvement offer”.

The retailer sees opportunity in a “fragmented sector” for an “end-to-end home improvement service, which includes inspiration, design, project management and execution” as it seeks to “expand beyond shops and online into new and enhanced services”.
