John Lewis sales up 7% last week

Sales at John Lewis climbed by 7% year-on-year last week as the retailer benefited from gift buying in the run-up to Mother’s Day.

Fashion sales were up 11.1% as the warmer weather drove an increase in menswear and womenswear sales with casual clothing seeing the strongest demand. Overall sales of womenswear were up 17.7% on last year while menswear sales rose by 8%.

Sales of beauty, wellbeing and leisure products surged by 18.1% year-on-year driven by the retailer’s Never Knowingly Undersold price matching activity.

Electrical, and home technology sales were up 7.5% as trade was influenced by a promotion on Samsung products.

Meanwhile, sales in the home category rose by 2.6% overall as sales of outdoor living products climbed by 20.6% due to the warmer Spring-like weather. Furniture sales increased by 3.7% driven by demand for fitted furniture and beds. Textile and carpet sales rose by 3.4%.
