Sales excluding fuel were up 0.3% last week on the same time last year.​ With the launch of our Christmas ad on Sunday the countdown to Christmas has truly begun. In the run-up to the ad's debut, shoppers took the opportunity of a half-price promotion to stock up on Christmas crackers​, with sales up 28%. Stocking fillers such as DVDs and luxury toiletries were up 100% and 45% respectively.

Singles Day in China on 11 November is the world's biggest shopping day​ - and orders of Waitrose food and drink to the country were more than four times their usual rate in preparation for the weekend. ​​We started exporting to China in 2016 and now provide a range of more than 100 products with sales already 75% ​up year on year​​.
