Total sales excluding fuel were 15.0% higher than the same week last year.  Comparisons are still distorted by the later fall of Easter this year than last - the equivalent week in 2016 was immediately following the Easter weekend​, meaning an extra day of trade this year for most shops.​

Much of the country enjoyed some sunshine at the weekend, prompting strong sales of our gardening ranges and ice creams.  We also launched ​the first of the season's ​British raspberries in to our shops last week​, which ​are extra sweet following recent sun levels.

Our new Haywards Heath shop opened on Thursday (30 March), the largest shop we are opening in 2017.  It features some of our new drinking and dining concepts including a sushi counter, wine bar, and our new 'Kitchen' concept, which provides freshly made food options that change throughout the day for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Total sales for last week were £78.3m, down 6% YoY, with figures still distorted due to Easter bank holiday trade falling into the comparable week last year. This week, however, will see us launch our Easter marketing activity for 2017.

Fashion sales were up 3% for the week. The launch of new own label denim lifestyle brand, AND/OR, combined with the warmer weather helped drive womenswear sales up by 5.3%, with womens casual clothing seeing the biggest uplift.

Home was down 3.7%, influenced by the fall of Easter. However, home accessories and gifts were up 12.4%. This was driven by sales of outdoor living, which saw growth of 52% as customers begin to prep their gardens for the summer months.

EHT sales were down 15.6% YoY, due to strong promotional activity in the comparable week last year. Mobile phones and photography equipment enjoyed a strong week however, with sales up 7.6%. Apple products in particular performed well, on the back of the launch of the new iPad and the red iPhone.

Elsewhere, last week saw us open our largest international shop-in-shop to date in Dubai. The 15,000 sq ft John Lewis space is located inside the refurbished Robinsons department store in the Al Futtaim Dubai Festival City Mall.
