Sales excluding fuel rose by 0.6% per cent last week, as the cooler weather saw shoppers stocking up on typically autumnal items.

Sweet treats were high on people's shopping lists last week as sales of premium ice cream rose by 20% and pre-packed cakes increased by 9%.

Total sales for the week were up 5.7% and, as in the previous week, sales of all departments grew faster than in the same week last year.

Electrical and Home Technology sales were up 8.2%.  Parents preparing for children going back to school and off to University helped drive a 13.0% increase in year on year sales of Communications Technology products such as computers and iPads.

Fashion sales were up 7.3%.  This was mainly due to summer products being marked down, and the cooler weather driving demand for new season warm clothing.  Womenswear sales were up 14.3% and menswear sales were up 5.0%.

Home sales were up 3.0%. The changing weather encouraged sales of bedding and lighting and we also saw an increase in furniture and flooring sales.
