John Lewis sales up 11.4% last week
The John Lewis department store chain saw its sales climb by 11.4% year-on-year last week.

Fashion sales were up 23.3% after new season clothing sales climbed by 17% due to customers buying items for their spring wardrobes. A price matching exercise helped beauty sales to rise by 37.8%.
