Total sales excluding fuel were up 6.4% on last year driven by the Half Price Event and the 25% off 3 bottles of wine promotion, which saw wine sales increase by more than 31%.

Parents stocked up on healthier lunch box options as children went back to school with sales of our easy peelers soft citrus and pears up 14 and 11% respectively. Sandwich sales also increased significantly, up 32% on last year.

As autumn approaches, hot pie sales were up 28% and sales of service counter roasting beef increased by 26%, helped by the half price event.

Total sales for the week were up 3.5%, at £85.6m.

Fashion had a strong week with sales up 9.8%. Womenswear sales were up 16.4% and menswear sales were up 15.4% on the same week last year.  The growth was driven by the launch of new products and brands including Boden, which went on sale online and in two shops, luxury Scottish brand Brora, and our Modern Rarity Eudon Choi collection of coats.

Electrical and Home Technology sales were up 2.8%. Sales of televisions were particularly strong due to the popularity of new Sony Smart TV ranges. We also saw strong demand for mobile phones.

Home sales were down 1.9%. We're beginning to see online searches for Christmas products rise, and at the end of last week we launched our online Christmas Shop. We also launched a range of Anthropologie home products in our shops and online for the first time.
