Total sales for the week were down 0.5% compared to last year at £96.2m, with the later fall of Clearance this year causing a shift in sales.

Fashion was up 1.5% with both mens and womens casualwear seeing double digit growth. Sales within the swimwear and nightwear category were also up, seeing an uplift of 26.5%, as customers prepare for their summer holidays. Beauty also had a good week, with sales rising by 9.8%.

EHT sales for the week were strong, rising by 9.8%. It was a record week for small electricals, as sales of fans continued to soar due to the hot weather across the UK. Mobile and photography also enjoyed a strong week, with sales up 46.4%, driven by a compelling offer on the new red iPhone. Apple also helped drive a sales uplift of 13.3% in tablets and computers, with the new iPad proving popular with customers.

Home sales were down 11.3%, with sales affected by the earlier fall of Clearance in 2016. Outdoor living, however, continued it's strong performance with sales for the week up by 39% as customers made the most of the hot weather to spend time outside.
