I live in Sheffield. I worry about the jobs to be lost at the John Lewis store if the closure goes ahead. The decision to make this closure has squandered the goodwill of Sheffield's people.
These northern closures are not something about which the brand can be proud, and I suspect that they will lead to a loss of customers online and at the supermarkets in the north. Can John Lewis afford to lose half their market?

It is a great store and very important to the survival of city centre shopping.

Sheffield needs a decent department store. I cannot believe that John Lewis is treating the people of Sheffield in this way. Now we are left - a major Northern City without access to a prestigious store. Surely with John Lewis their expertise can come up with some innovative ideas to keep the store open.

John Lewis has been a very important shop to us for the past 45 years that we have lived in Sheffield. We are not prepared to travel to Leeds to shop at John Lewis there.

It would be s great shame to lose such an important establishment in Sheffield, been here for so long and is a major part of this city's retail sector. Would be a disaster for the city, shoppers, John Lewis employees and John Lewis itself.
