John Lewis sales up 5.4% last week

As it entered its new financial year, John Lewis saw its sales increase by 5.4% year on-year last week.

Home posted the strongest sales uplift with sales rising by 8.8%. Trade was driven by ‘big ticket’ items such as furniture and beds.

Electricals and home technology sales climbed by 7.2% with audio products putting in a particularly strong performance. The communications technology category saw growth from tablets and computers as well as mobile phones.

Fashion sales edged up 1.6% driven by buoyant sales in the beauty category. Shops where the retailer invested in new beauty halls last year performed particularly well. John Lewis said the arrival of its Modern Rarity Spring/Summer collection helped womenswear to post a 3.4% increase.
