When Wallace Waite, Arthur Rose and David Taylor opened their first small grocery shop at 263 Acton Hill, West London in 1904, little did they know that within a century the company would have become one of the country's leading food retailers employing over 37,000 people.
The John Lewis Partnership acquired the business in 1937, opening the first Waitrose supermarket in 1955. Today there are 243 branches, dedicated to offering quality, value and customer service.
There are Waitrose shops throughout England, Scotland and Wales. Locations range from high streets to edge of town sites and vary in size from just 7,000 square feet to approximately 56,000 feet. The John Lewis Partnership as a whole employs nearly 68,000 Partners and has a turnover in excess of £6 billion. As well as Waitrose, it runs 26 John Lewis department stores throughout the UK, several manufacturing concerns and a farm.
Waitrose aims to combine the convenience of a supermarket with the expertise and service of a specialist shop. We also offer you a Price Commitment to ensure you always get good value for money when shopping.
Waitrose is committed to providing the best British food and produce, whilst treating our customers, employees, farmers and suppliers fairly. The company aims to operate whilst considering right choices for the environment by reducing packaging, waste, CO2 emissions and responsibly sourcing food. We also believe that eating well should be enjoyable – therefore providing a wide range of imaginative and nutritious choices to help inspire you to eat more healthily.
The Caversham store itself has been a cornerstone of the local community for approaching 27 years. Boasting over 160 employees and serving thousands more each week. Whether it is a place for your daily shop or ‘Food To Go’ for a picnic by the river Waitrose Caversham has it all and anything that you need that we don’t have you can find on our website where there are facilities for free glass hire, flower bouqets and/or wine delivered to your home.
With the Iceland carpark now upgraded for better monitoring this has allowed the Waitrose carpark to be more accessible to customers throughout the day. Alternatively, if you are coming by bus we offer the facility to shop in store before have your shopping delivered to your front door, just ask at the welcome desk and we will book a delivery slot that suits you.
Beyond serving customers, Waitrose has a long and distinguished relationship with the area by providing ongoing support to local schools and charities through our Community Matters programme.
Waitrose has the seal of approval from the Queen with the Royal Warrent. It is The Waitrose way.
