Vibrant Christmas sales send records tumbling at John Lewis

This figure is 13.8% up on the same week last year, 6% higher than the weekly figure from two years ago and almost £Im ahead of the previous record week set in 2007. 

Home entertaining, particularly electronic games, continue to break sales records. In addition traditional games are flying off the shelves with a number of  branches reporting a 100% increase in sales of Monopoly and other board games in advance of families providing their own entertainment this Christmas.

Toys also saw a record breaking week last week with sales of over £4m

Nat Wakely, Director of Selling Operations for John Lewis said, "This has been a superb record week. Partners in all our branches have worked extremely hard to ensure that customers have the best possible Christmas shopping experience at John Lewis and that they find the innovative quality products they are looking for at the lowest prices underpinned by our Never Knowingly Undersold promise. With Christmas shopping seriously under way there is a clear trend for an indulgent family Christmas. It has been many years since we saw such strong sales in chocolates, candles and slippers!"
