John Lewis sales up 7.3% last week

John Lewis saw its sales climb by 7.3% year-on-year last week as trade was boosted by a strong performance in electricals and home technology.

GENERAL MERCHANDISE

John Lewis sales up 7.3% last week

Sales in the category increased by 11.2% as customers made hi tech purchases ahead of their summer holidays, with cameras and wireless headphones both proving popular. The warm weather also drove sales of home cooling devices, which finished the week up 61%.

There was a 5.4% sales rise in the home category boosted by the popularity of outdoor living items. Trade was also bolstered by the launch of an exclusive collaboration with the Loaf furniture brand.

Fashion sales were also 5.4% up year-on-year. The category benefited from a strong week for beauty, helped by the launch of a Charlotte Tilbury counter in Peter Jones. Menswear also had a strong week, with sales rising by 11.4%.
