Total divisional sales excluding fuel were down by 3.6%, although comparisons with last year are heavily distorted by the earlier fall of Mother's Day which was on 6 March in 2016.

Shrove Tuesday celebrations generated an uplift in key ingredients with lemons up by a sharp 40% and eggs rising by 12%.

The new range of Chinese and Asian ready meals also performed very strongly with sales up 29% and 35% respectively.

With Fairtrade Fortnight under way, customers marked the campaign by selecting items bearing the logo - notably tea and coffee which saw a 5% uplift.

Total sales for the week were £80.4m, up 2.8% on last year.

Fashion sales were strong, growing by 7.7% YoY, with both mens and womenswear seeing an uplift. This was largely driven by matching a competitor promotion, which we price matched under our Never Knowingly Undersold policy. Beauty, wellbeing and leisure also saw a rise in sales, growing by 6.6% compared with last year.

EHT sales rose by 4.5%. Communication tech saw another strong week, driven by mobile and photo, with sales for the category increasing by 17.1%. Large electricals also saw sales grow, rising by 4.9% compared with last year.

Home was down 3.4%, with the later fall of Mother's Day this year causing a shift in sales. Furniture, however, saw sales increase by 6.6%, with beds and fitted furniture in particular having a strong week.
