Total sales for the week were £73.8m, up 3.9%. The rise in sales was mainly driven by price matching a competitor's event on Fashion and Cook and Dine products through our commitment to being Never Knowingly Undersold.

Fashion sales were up 7.9% compared to the same week last year. The biggest increase was in Beauty, Wellbeing and Leisure where sales rose by 15.6%, followed by Menswear sales which grew by 9.5%. Womenswear sales grew by 5.2%,  and sales of women's shoes increased by 15.7% year on year and jewellery by 14.5%. Sales of our collaborative women's fashion ranges which include modern rarity, Somerset by Alice Temperley and Bruce by Bruce Oldfield had very strong sales, up 45.7% as customers bought occasion outfits for weddings and summer events.

Home sales were up 1.3%.  Cook and Dine sales were positively impacted by price matching the competitor's event which saw sales in our Living Dining category grow by 10.6% and Utility Shop sales increase by 6.5%.

Electrical and Home Technology sales were up 2.0%. Sales of Audio and Connected Home products rose by 19.5% year on year,  boosted by the launch of Ring's smart doorbell. Sony's PlayStation promotion which launched last Friday, and our three year guarantee promotion on PlayStation 4 & Xboxs helped drive sales of Gaming products up 342.0%.
