A strong week for fashion sales

Reflecting relative stability of growth in recent weeks against last year, week three saw total sales up 3.5%. This growth was rooted in a strong online performance which was up 16.7% year-on-year.

There was a solid performance delivered across both the Home and Fashion directorates, each up 5.8% year-on-year.

Outdoor Living, inspired by the noticeably lighter mornings and evenings, had an incredibly strong week at 285% up, while Fitted Furniture was also looking healthy at 29% up. Inside or out, it would seem that home improvements are at the forefront of our customers' minds!

In the world of fashion there were strong performances across the board; star performers being Babywear, up 21.1%, Jewellery 14.5% up and Nursery up 13.4%, with Online seeing double-digit sales growth across all Fashion buying groups.

EHT sales were level this week with Small Electricals achieving an 11.8% increase, backed up by Photo and Prints. Our three-year guarantees on Apple products are also proving increasing popular, further stimulating trade on these branded products.

At a branch level, Croydon topped the tables at 5.6% up, closely followed by Stratford City, up 5.5% and Exeter, up 4.7%.

With winter on the way out, our increased focus turns to spring and we look forward to welcoming refreshed seasonal trade.
