This is in addition to a range of existing services that Clipper currently provides for John Lewis including returns management for e-commerce products, forward orders for furniture, pre-retail operations for clothing suppliers.
In addition, the joint venture Clicklink provides click and collect services for John Lewis e-commerce customer orders to Waitrose and Co-op stores nationwide, as well click and collect services for many other retailers.
