John Lewis to shut Knight & Lee store in Southsea

The retailer said the 35,000 sq ft Knight & Lee outlet in Southsea in Hampshire was its smallest full-range department store and could not easily be modernised. John Lewis has previously acknowledged the "Challenges" facing the High Street in the current retail climate.
