John Lewis Week saw its sales rise by 8.3% last week despite trade being affected by snow in some areas of the country.

GENERAL MERCHANDISE

John Lewis weekly sales up 8.3%

In the week ending 16 February, electrical and home technology sales increased by 29.9% boosted by strong sales of telecom, imaging and electrical products. 

Fashion sales edged up 2% with the best overall performance coming from menswear and sports where sales rose 10.5%. 

Home sales dropped 1.9% despite an uplift in sales of gift items as customers shopped for Easter and Valentine's presents.  

The best performing stores were Chester, Swindon, and Edinburgh where sales were up 24.9%, 14.4% and 11.2% respectively.

Online sales at johnlewis.com rose 30.4%, driven by strong trade in electrical and home technology products.

David Barford, director, selling operations, Region B, John Lewis, said: "Looking ahead we have all to play for as new season stock arrives and the new spring/summer furniture assortments are now in place."
