John Lewis reports strong sales increase last week

Electricals and home technology was the stand out performer with sales up 17.1% on the year. Sales in electricals were driven by the impending summer of sport as customers bought new TVs ahead of the Euro 2016 kick off this Friday.

Fashion sales rose by 10.1% driven by buoyant sales in the beauty, wellbeing and sports categories.

Sales across home products finished the week up 7.7%. Haberdashery performed particularly well with sewing machine sales up 21% due to the influence of the Great British Sewing Bee TV programme. Outdoor living products also had a good week with sales rising by 45.4%.
