Sales up on last year with online performing well for John Lewis

John Lewis weekly sales figures for last week (to 6 November 2010)

CITY & CORPORATE

Sales up on last year with online performing well for John Lewis

The company said that after a bumper half term, trade was slightly more subdued last week. Sales dipped in the middle of the week as customers avoided London during the Tube strikes and warmer weather played its part. That said, sales were still 5.4 per cent up on last year, with online posting a 36 per cent increase.

Christmas buying was evident. Christmas shop was 15 per cent up, with cookshop collections and gifts doing well. Lighting was up 13%.
EHT had onliine growth, ably supported by shops to deliver a 4 % increase.

Accessories, menswear and childrenswear were  8% up.
Customers are responding well to the convenience of the multi-channel offering; kiosk sales doubled compared with a fortnight ago and Click & Collect was 30 per cent up on last year with the newly extended Waitrose shops a significant part of this.

The online assortment is almost double that of last year and with the joined-up Christmas Festival messaging the  number of multi-channel customers is increasing every week.
