This is the website of the Robert Sayle Memory Store, which is an archive, put together by Retired Partners, to keep the name of Robert Sayle, the man and the store, alive.  Here you can browse through our collection of memories including photos, audio clips, old documents and memories of both retired and working Partners of the shop, from March 1840 when it opened as a Drapery Store in the name of Robert Sayle, to the change of name to John Lewis Cambridge in November 2007.

We would be delighted if you, as a previous Partner or Customer could share your memories with us too.

If you could help us with the recognition of anyone in any of the photos,, we would be pleased to add to our collection.
