John Lewis sales this week were £74.4m, down -3.1% YoY as this time last year we were matching a competitor's promotion, which didn’t take place this year.

In EHT sales were up +2.5% on the year, driven by Audio and Connected Home as well as Mobile phones.

Home Sales were down -4.2% YOY, also impacted by the comparison to last year's promotion in some categories where branded products feature. There were strong increases in some areas of Home, with Beds and Bedroom furniture sales up +13.8%, bed linen up 6.5% and duvets and pillows up 5.2%. Lighting was also up +1.7%.

Fashion sales were down -7.8% on the year, as this time last year we were matching a competitor's promotion. This was particularly apparent in branded fashion, however our own-brand designer collaborations including Somerset by Alice Temperley and Bruce by Bruce Oldfield were up on the year. Elsewhere in the Fashion area, sales of toys increased by +11.5% and girls clothing was up +2.3% as the new half term began for many schools.
