Electrical, and Home Technology sales were up 1.1%. Sales of mobile phones and photography continued to grow with sales up 32.1% on last year, partly due to the launch last week of the new Samsung Galaxy S8 mobile phone. Vision also had a strong week with sales up 9.7%.

Fashion sales were up 0.5%. Sales of beauty, wellbeing and leisure products were up 4.1%. Sales of clothing were impacted by the colder weather but womenswear still grew by 2.6% year on year with casualwear performing the strongest.
