Our Waitrose 1 promotion with 25% off continued to be a success with customers, with popular products including coffee, biscuits and pasta.

Last week's mixed weather combined with a number of televised sporting events drove customers to choose convenient meal options. Sales of Asian ready meals were up 25%.

Beer, wines and spirits was also a popular category last week. Gin continues to be a top seller, with sales up 24% compared to last year, and malt whisky sales up by 18%.

Total sales for the week were up 5.9% with sales of all departments growing more than in the same week last year.

Electrical and Home Technology  sales were up 9.2%. Vision saw the biggest growth with sales of TVs up 17.7% and the new 'Samsung The Frame Art Mode TV' proved popular. Communications Technology product sales were up 12.7%  largely due to sales of Apple MacBooks growing by 53% as a result of matching a competitor's promotion.

Fashion sales were up 7.5%, primarily driven by womenswear sales which were up 21.5%, partially due to the mid-week unseasonal weather which drove early demand for outerwear. Sales of menswear products were up 8.1% and we saw strong demand for Paul Smith menswear which had its first full week of sales.

Home sales were up 1.0%. Sales of Textiles and Home Accessories were up 4.9% and sales of Gifts, Cook and Dine products rose by 1.5%.
