Total sales excluding fuel were up 1.5% on last year, as customers took advantage of a number of promotions in store and online.

Beer, wines and spirits had another strong week, partly driven by the launch of our new Waitrose Blueprint half bottles of wine, as well as special offers across our beers. Spirits were also popular, with sales of rum rising 42% and Blended Whisky and Tequila both up 36%.

As organised shoppers start to plan ahead, sales of our Christmas and Halloween-related products began to gather pace.

Bakery also performed strongly. Last week saw the launch of Pastel de Nata, a Portuguese custard tart, in some of our shops which proved popular with customers - particularly after the sweet treat was featured on last week's Great British Bake Off.

Warmer weather at the start of October had an impact on fashion sales, which were down 2.7%. However the Kin range had a record week, up 55% compared to last year.

Home sales were down 2.5%. However, the Christmas Villages continue to perform strongly and Halloween products were up 30% on last year.
