John Lewis sales up 6.9% last week

Sales in the home category rose by 7.8% as trade was boosted by good performances in 'big ticket' items. Furniture led the way with growth in both upholstery and beds.

Meanwhile, the fashion category posted a 1.9% increase, with beauty and menswear among the top performers.
