Total sales excluding fuel were up by 2% on the same week last year. Sales showed a mix of shopping habits as the cold and frosty weather influenced sales of comfort food, while other customers stuck to their healthy New Year's resolutions.

Fresh fruit sales thrived last week, with vitamin-packed citrus fruit up 13%. Stir fries were a favoured midweek meal, with sales of pre-packed vegetable mixes up 38%.

Conversely, indulgent categories such as cheese and beer also saw strong sales. Shoppers treated themselves to something sweet too, as frozen dessert sales rose by 9 % and confectionery increased by 13%.

In the week when we began introducing spring/summer ranges total sales were £77.4m +4.9% year on year.

Home was our strongest category with sales +9.5% year on year.  This was partly due to Clearance, which has ended in other categories, but always continues until the end of January in Home. Last week offers on furniture led to sales rising 17.9% higher than in the same week last year.

Fashion sales were up +3.5% year on year. Our own brand spring/summer clothing ranges, including modern rarity, went on sale last week and proved popular.  Overall sales of womenswear were up 16.2% year on year.

Electrical and Home Technology sales were +2.6% year on year. Communications technology products were up 10.8% year on year driven by demand for audio products such as portable speakers, headphones and radios, and mobile phones. Sales of Apple phones were up +58% and Android phones were +76%.
