Home sales continue to advance

Week 25 rounded off Clearance very nicely with an 18.8% advance on last year.

It was another well balanced scorecard, in which the Home directorate set the pace with sales leaping by one third on last year. Within the directorate all areas prospered, but Furniture stole the headlines with more than a 50% advance. Fashion took second spot with the start of the school holidays propelling Childrenswear to 25% growth. In EHT the advantage lay with Audio and Large appliances, both of which have enjoyed fine halves.

The momentum was similarly split between 'bricks'and 'clicks'. Online again passed the 25% mark, and I know all concerned will be fighting to ensure their half year score remains ahead of that measure - excellent progress!

Similarly shops recorded over 16% growth with High Wycombe, all the new format shops and Cribbs Causeway being in particularly fine form. 17% each from Kingston, Stratford City, Milton Keynes, Cardiff, and Edinburgh underlined the nationwide strength we enjoyed.

The result lifted the score for the half year to 9.4%, and therefore with just one week to go, we can conclude that it has been another positive half for John Lewis.

We go into the all important second half with hard won momentum.
