Total sales excluding fuel were up by 2.7% on the same week last year.​ The cold weather influenced shopping patterns across our estate, leading to a spike in ranges such as hot drinks, ready meals and soups.

​The January health kick is clearly in full swing, with lots of fresh produce and fish being bought - including 9% more salads, 20% more avocados and a strong demand for our Fish Friday promotion.

Many customers have been choosing low​ alcohol and alcohol-free wines​ - either to participate in 'dry January' or just to minimise their alcohol intake at the start of the year. ​But overall our ​wine sales (up 5%)​ indicate people are still choosing to enjoy wine in moderation​.  We are also seeing robust gin sales, with the range up by 17% last week.

Customers are taking the opportunity of our half-price offers to stock up cupboards, with particular demand for cleaning and laundry products to freshen up homes at the start of the year.

Sales this week, which was the last week in Clearance, were good with total sales reaching £89.1m +3.7% year on year.

Electrical and Home Technology was our strongest category +6.9% year on year, and sales of audio and smart home products were up 28.4%, driven largely by the popularity of headphones.

Home Sales were +3.8% year on year again driven by Clearance. Sales of 'Special buy' products were significantly up, as were sales of home accessories, gifts and furniture.

Fashion sales were down -0.1% year on year. Beauty, Wellbeing and Leisure performed the strongest within the category with sales up 5.6%.
