Total sales, excluding fuel, were down 4.6 per cent compared to the same week last year with comparisons heavily distorted due to the fall of Easter. This means we are comparing a full week in 2016 with six days this year.

While cooler, continued sunny spells led to an increase in sales of warmer weather food.  Sales of rosé saw a rise of 22 per cent and outdoor products increased by 230 per cent, including picnicware which rose by 140 per cent.

Sales of fresh fruit and produce also had a strong week, with raspberries up by 40 per cent, strawberries 28 per cent and salad 14 per cent.

Waitrose also announced the launch of British, Vale of Evesham asparagus, which was awarded Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status earlier this year.  

As a result, asparagus sales increased by 60 per cent as customers enjoyed the 100% British in-season vegetable.

Total sales for last week were £74.9m, up 1.6% year on year, with sales still impacted by the fall of Easter this year compared to last. The majority of John Lewis shops were shut on Easter Sunday, which fell into the weeks trading.

Fashion sales were down 0.4%. Womens casualwear, however, continued to see sales rise and swimwear & nightwear also enjoyed sales growth this week, up by 16.9%. Childrenswear had a good week of trade largely driven by sales of childrens shoes, up 31.5%, as kids head back to school after the Easter break.

Sales in Home were down 5.0%, impacted by one day's less trade. Gift food and seasonal remained strong (+7.1%) due to continued Easter sales, and stationery saw a 5.2% rise.

EHT had a strong week of trading, up 11.7%, largely driven by compelling promotions over the Easter period. Vision, including TVs, had a particularly good week with sales up 14.3%, and audio and connected home also saw a healthy uplift of 7.4%. Elsewhere within EHT, mobile and photograhy saw sales rise by a huge 57.9% as new launches helped drive sales.
