Total sales were 4.0% higher than the same week last year. The warm weather heading in to the bank holiday weekend prompted sunshine-led trends across our shops and online.

Our top performing ranges were fruit, which saw an increase of 9%, and beers, wines and spirits, which saw a 16% rise in sales for the week. Best-sellers within these ranges were sunny favourites including strawberries (up 34%), Aperol (up 70%), and rose wine, which saw a 54% increase.

Other food and drink seeing a weather-related boost included barbecue meats, up by 34%, deli foods - up by 13%, ice cream - up 14%, and 'food to go' products, which saw a 14% rise in sales.

English wine week started on Saturday (27 May), and more people than ever have been choosing a home-grown bottle to celebrate. Sales of our range of English wines were up by 93% last week compared to last year.
