Total sales excluding fuel were 1.4% lower than the same week last year, in which there was a half price event and significant marketing activity - neither of which were running last week.  The warm weather towards the end of the week meant many customers chose food and drinks suited to entertaining and outside activities.

This included our deli and seafood ranges, as well as individual products suited to barbecues or picnics - such as packs of rolls and bowls of prepared salads.  We also saw strong sales of drinks, including beer, rose wine, gin, and fizzy soft drinks.

Our £10 meal deal w​as particularly ​popular as shoppers looked for a quick and easy dinner, rather than spending too much time inside, preparing food.

Total sales for the week were up 6.2% on last year, at £83.8m. 

Fashion had a strong week, up 12.8%, driven by the price matching of a competitor's promotional event. Beauty, wellbeing and leisure sales performed particularly strongly, up 22%, driven by strong sales at beauty counters. Both mens and womenswear also saw double digit growth, and womens accessories grew by 11.4%. 

EHT sales were also up this week, rising by 8.2%. Vision had a strong week, with sales up 20.4%, and communication tech also saw growth of 20.9%, with both Apple and Windows products performing strongly. 

Home sales were down 2.3%, however, BBQ sales were up 11% as customers made the most of the warmer weather heading into the bank holiday weekend.
