Total sales excluding fuel were 7.6% higher than last year. Sales, while still distorted due to the fall of Easter, were ​also ​driven by the hot weather, as al fresco dining and summer drinking trends saw positive growth.​

The sunshine saw​ shoppers enjoying fresh fruit and vegetables with s​e​asonal highlights including British asparagus (up 26%) and Jersey Royals (up 55%).

Outdoor activities were naturally a popular choice for the balmy weather as sun care sales soared by 170%.
