With the warmer weather, fresh produce and lighter eating were popular. Fresh fruit and vegetables performed well, including raspberries (up 38%), prepared fruit (up 29%) and salad (up 11%).  The spring-like feel continued with daffodil sales blooming, up 56%, as customers brightened up their homes.

Also in growth were our gluten and dairy free products, as sales of the 'free from' range rose by 135% last week.

Total sales for the week were £76.5m, up 7.0% on last year. We continued to see the influence of the different fall of Mother's Day this year compared to last year, with strong increases for key gifting categories.

Fashion sales were up 11.1% year on year. The warmer weather drove an increase in sales of both menswear and womenswear with casualwear clothing seeing the strongest demand. Overall sales of womenswear were up 17.7% on last year and menswear sales were up 8.0%. Sales of beauty, wellbeing and leisure products were up 18.1% year on year driven by price matching under our Never Knowingly Undersold policy.

Electrical, Home and Technolgy sales were up 7.5% year on year. Electrical items were up 6.4%, with large electricals up 6.8% as we ran a promotion on Samsung products. Audio and connected home products were also up 16.3% as this key category continues to grow.

Home sales were up 2.6% on last year. Sales of outdoor living products rose by 20.6% as a result of the increasingly Spring-like weather. Furniture sales rose by 3.7% mainly due to demand for fitted furniture and beds, and textiles and carpets sales rose by 3.4% on last year.
