John Lewis staff count down to 17% bonus
Department store group John Lewis has announced a 17% bonus for staff after reporting a rise in profits.
The partnership, which includes Waitrose supermarkets, said it made pre-tax profits of £409m ($613m) last year - a rise of 15.8%.
John Lewis is owned by its employees, meaning some of the profits are paid as bonuses every year.
The 17% bonus was unveiled after a countdown in the store.
