Total sales excluding fuel were up 1.1% on last year boosted by the Half Price Event and the launch of the essential Waitrose campaign.

Launched to highlight the value and quality of the essential Waitrose range, the long term campaign has already had a promising start as essential Waitrose staples grew in sales.  Classic essential Waitrose lines such as baked beans were up by 135% and essential Waitrose tinned tomatoes up by 68%; while other weekly essentials such as essential Waitrose croissants and yum yums grew by 138% and 42% respectively.

The cooler weather compared to last year's warmer temperatures led to increased sales of soup, which was up by 25%. And the renewed popularity of Great British Bake Off led to increased sales of baking ingredients rising by 13%, including butter, which was up by 17%.

Total sales for the week were up 7.6% on last year at £85.4m.

Fashion had an exceptionally strong week, with sales up 18.4%. Both mens and womenswear saw double digit growth, with autumn/winter clothing driving sales as we approach the cooler months. Own brand womenswear in particular experienced strong sales as the new Eudon Choi x modern rarity collection enjoyed its first full week in shops and online. Elsewhere, beauty was up 10%, supported by new launches, and fragrance also enjoyed a good week with sales up 9%.

Home sales were up 5.8%. Gifts, cook & dine saw growth of 7.6%, driven by the back to uni demand, and textiles & home accessories were up 7.7%. Blinds also enjoyed a good week, with sales up 12%.

EHT was up 1.6% for the week. Audio had a good week, driven by a compelling Sonos promotion to celebrate its 15 year anniversary and Vision also saw strong sales this week. Accessories also performed well as own-label iPhone cases launched in shops and online.
