Total sales excluding fuel were 0.5 per cent down on last year, in part due to the different timing of promotional activity compared to the same period in 2016.

Total Hallowe'en sales finished at 14 per cent up on last year, with Hallowe'en flowers faring particularly well at 12 per cent up.​ ​

The Waitrose Food and Drink Report 2017-18 was well covered in the media revealing comprehensive new consumer research and insight showing that people have become more flexible in their shopping patterns, more price-savvy and more single-minded than ever before.

It showed that 65 per cent of Britons visit a supermarket more than once a day whether on a regular or occasional basis and over half of shoppers don't decide what they are having for dinner until lunchtime.

Total sales for the week were £102.0m, down 3.7% on the same week last year. 

Fashion sales were up 4.5%. Beauty, wellbeing and leisure saw double digit growth for the week, driven by the price matching of a competitor's promotion. Fragrance performed exceptionally well, up 59% versus last year, with fragance gift sets a standout. 

Home sales were down 7.0%. Halloween ended the season strongly however, up 24% for the entire season as a whole. Elsewhere, sales of alcohol are performing well as customers begin to look ahead to the festive season. 

Electrical and home technology sales were down 8.4%. John Lewis own brand audio products had a good week, however, with Sonos also performing well. Within Vision, LG and Sony products helped drive a sales uplift of 1.3% and mobile had a particularly strong week, driven by the launch of the iPhone X.
