John Lewis & Partners sales down 2.5% last week

The John Lewis department store saw its total sales decline by 2.5% year-on-year last week as the retailer’s clearance sale came to an end and sales in the home department were impacted by competitor promotions.

Fashion sales edged up 0.4% after the retailer enjoyed strong sales of nursery products.  This meant that sales in the childrenswear, nursery and haberdashery category rose by 4.8%.

Electrical and home technology sales also increased, rising by 1.1%. John Lewis attributed the uplift to customers buying new computers and tablets as a result of Windows 7 reaching its end of life.

Meanwhile, home sales were down 9.3% after the end of the clearance sale coincided with a number of competitor promotions.
