Sales remain steady

After our record-breaking 'Black Friday' week, last week saw steady customer demand, with sales of £160m, up 10.8% on last year.

Sales from johnlewis.com were up 32.2% on last year, and the strength of our omni-channel proposition shone through with Click & collect sales up 30.4% on last year and Partner-enabled online sales ahead by 33%.

In our shops, John Lewis at home continues to deliver strong sales, with Poole, Tamworth, Chester and Swindon all returning double-digit gains. Stratford City was the pick of the department stores, reaping the benefit of work done to tailor its assortment and deliver consistently excellent presentation standards.

Fashion was 7.8% up on last year. Childrenswear, Toys and Crafts had an incredibly strong week, with Micro Scooters and Lego driving sales. Home saw a 4.8% uplift with Lighting enjoying another record week. Our powerful House brand drove sales, proving it is now a key part of our assortment.

EHT continued to enjoy the halo from Black Friday with sales up 20.6% against last year and Large Electrical recording its second biggest week ever.

With the operational demands of peak trade being felt across the industry, Partners throughout John Lewis should take pride in the excellent results we are collectively delivering and the resilience of our operations. Continuing to focus all efforts on these outcomes in the final weeks of the year remains our top priority.
