Total sales excluding fuel were down 0.5% compared to the same week last year.

The comparisons are affected by better weather during the equivalent week in 2016 and marketing activity around the launch of Waitrose 1 a year ago.

Sales last week reflected the unsettled weather conditions with consumer choices divided between summery products and those more traditionally associated with colder temperatures.

While sorbet sales were up 64% and sun care sales were strong, sales of frozen vegetables and fresh prepared vegetables were still growing, up by 11% and 15%, respectively.

Wines had another excellent performance with sales up almost 6% and we will look to build upon that this week with promotional activity ahead of English Wine Week, which begins on 27 May.

Total sales for the week were £76.3m, up 1.1% on last year.

Fashion sales were up 4.9% year on year, driven by customers buying casual clothing ahead of the anticipated warmer weather and summer holidays.  Sales of womenswear were up 7%, and menswear grew by 6.3%. Beauty, wellbeing and leisure also performed well with sales up 14.2% year on year due to price matching a competitor's promotional event.

Electrical and Home Technology sales were up 0.8% year on year. Communications Technology products were up 5.8% driven by demand for the new Samsung S8, Apple Watches and the FitBit Alta.

Home sales were down 2.2% year on year, but there was an increase in customers placing deposits for future orders.
