Total sales excluding fuel were 1.8% higher than the same week last year​. Weather was milder than recently but warming foods such as soups and roasting meats were still popular, up by 15% and 52% respectively.

The start of the Six Nations rugby on Saturday and the Super Bowl on Sunday ​helped ​dr​i​ve sales of our beer range up by 5%, our 'ready to drink' cans by 24% and our range of drinks mixers by 33%. The Super Bowl in particular drove sales of American and American-style beers.  Shoppers also bought more snacks to eat while watching sports - packs of nuts were up by 17%.

Elsewhere, shoppers took the opportunity of our kitchen and home event to freshen up the house with essentials - sales of the range as a whole were up by 15% for the week.

A good week's trade as we enter the new financial year and new season collections begin to land, with sales of £74.4m, up +5.4% YoY.

Home posted the strongest sales increase, up +8.8% on last year. The growth was focused on 'big ticket' products such as furniture, with beds and fitted furniture particularly strong.

EHT also showed strong growth and was up +7.2% YoY. Audio was particularly strong at +11%. Communications tech saw growth from tablets and computers, along with mobile phones which continue to be popular with customers.

Fashion was also up at +1.6% YoY. Beauty drove sales here, with the category (which includes Wellbeing and Leisure) posting a +7.2% increase and brands such as MAC and Charlotte Tilbury popular. Shops where we invested in new beauty halls last year performed particularly well. Our new modern rarity Spring/Summer collection came in this week, and helped womenswear to post a 3.4% increase.
