Total sales excluding fuel were up 3.4% on last year thanks in part to the 25% off all wine and champagne (three bottles or more) promotion. The warm bank holiday also drove sales of cider and beer, helping the overall beers, wines and spirits category rise 21.6% year on year.

Sunshine at the start of the week contributed to sales of children's lollies increasing by 16%, sun cream by 27% and sandwiches by 5%.

Celeriac rice also performed well after Waitrose became the first supermarket to introduce the vegetable as a carbohydrate alternative for risottos or curries.

Total sales for the week were down 0.5%, at £87.1m.

EHT had a strong week, up 2.8% with standout performances in Vision (up 5.8%) and Small Electricals (up 6.9%).  Wearable Technology also had a strong week (up 52%), as did Apple, driven by strong MacBook sales.

Fashion sales were up 1.0% with a strong performance in Beauty (up 11.5%) within which perfume sales were a standout.  Both John Lewis casual and formalwear performed well.

Home was down 5.5% in part due to annualising of price match promotions in the same week last year although strong performers included Beds (up 4.7%), and Outdoor Living (up 8.5%).
