White Stores Garden Furniture vs. John Lewis Garden Furniture
Comparing our own garden furniture to that of other businesses could be risky, but we’re so confident in our garden furniture quality that we are happy to weigh up the pros and cons of buying with us over retail giants John Lewis.
We believe every aspect of buying garden furniture should be an easy and enjoyable experience, from the website experience to the delivery, to the quality of the product itself. Therefore, looking at, firstly, both White Stores and John Lewis’ websites we believe we come out on top for the easiest to use website experience.
Searching for “John Lewis Garden Furniture” and following the top links brings you through to their ‘Garden Furniture Ranges’ page which gives you the choice of their brands. The downside to this is that you may not know the difference between the brands and what sort of furniture they sell. You can filter by brand, price and colour on this page, however you cannot filter by furniture type or set size, therefore you may have to click into each individual category to find what you are looking for unless you know each brand well.
Searching for “White Stores Garden Furniture” and following the top links will bring you to our garden furniture category page which allows you to continue through the website by choosing which type of furniture you are looking for, whether that is rattan garden furniture, fabric garden furniture, aluminium, etc. We believe this is a much simpler way to find the type of furniture that you are looking for.
Furthermore, when comparing delivery for John Lewis and White Stores will see a similar lead time on items however, looking through John Lewis’ delivery pages it is not clear how the furniture is delivered. White Stores clearly informs you that delivery of garden furniture will be a pallet delivery with White Glove and assembly services available in certain areas.
When it comes to the type of items available on each site both offer rattan garden furniture, cast aluminium, outdoor fabric and more. However, White Stores only offers full sets and not individual items, whereas John Lewis do offer items such as dining tables or chairs as individual items. However, White Stores is confident that people rarely look to purchase individual items unless it is as a replacement for a damaged piece they already own. But White Stores offers extensive guarantees which allow them to replace these damaged items and therefore they do not need to sell individual items.
Comparing the brands on price for similar products proved align the brands as very similar with not much difference, or with White Stores being marginally cheaper on several items. However, John Lewis mostly stocks products from high-end brands such as Kettler, Barlow Tyrie and their own branded furniture. Whereas, White Stores offers a more extensive price range from cheaper items and also matching the number of high-end items, therefore offering a wider choice to suit more people.
When it comes to the quality of these products, looking at John Lewis’ high-end range it is clear that quality is something that can be guaranteed when shopping with John Lewis, although the guarantee for each item is not listed. White Stores is extremely proud of the quality of our products and makes clear the warranty of each item on our website. For most furniture sets the warranty is upwards of 3 years, showing that we have complete faith in our furniture.
We believe that when comparing ourselves with John Lewis we offer a better all-round shopping experience as well as top quality garden furniture. If you wish to find out more about or garden furniture we recommend visiting one of our showrooms or speaking to one of our customer service advisors.
