New season products prove popular

The end of Clearance and some poor weather didn't quite dampen our customers' enthusiasm, as we finished the week with a respectable 3.0% sales growth on last year.

Online saw an increase of 15.9% accounting for 34% of total divisional sales, supported by the continuing trend of customers browsing and shopping on their mobiles, with website traffic from mobile phones up 64% year on year. Shops continued to play a pivotal role in delivering our omni-proposition, with the Click & collect operation up 27.9% year on year.

In our shops, some strong performance in new format shops was complemented by great form at Peter Jones.

'In with the new' was the theme for the week, with the launch of new season products across all assortments.

Customers have been particularly inspired by the new Spring/Summer Home catalogue launch and sales of the Fusion collection show great promise. This resulted in Home finishing the week up 4.4% with Beds and Mattresses leading the way on 30% up and Floor Coverings and Furnishing Fabrics both seeing strong sales growth.

Fashion achieved a strong week's sales performance finishing up 10.0%. There were stand-out performances from Toys, which saw a 6.4% increase, and Nursery with a huge 24.9% gain.

The strength of Womenswear online and in shops demonstrates our continued strength and appeal with sales growth of 15.5% year-on-year.

The challenging market conditions continue to impact EHT with total sales -2.3%, despite more positive sales performances in other consumer electronics categories. Small Electrical delivered 24.1% growth, Large Electrical 6.8% and Photo and Printing achieved 15.2% sale growth.

As we enter the final week of the trading year, the focus remains on delivering an exceptional customer experience and positive sales growth through a seamless omni-channel proposition. This is clearly evidenced through inspirational visual merchandising displays, pop-up shops and online advertising, all providing a fantastic showcase for our new spring/summer season assortments.
