Total sales excluding fuel were 7% higher than last year, influenced in part by Valentine's Day falling on a Tuesday this year compared to the Sunday of the previous trading week in 2016.

Traditional Valentine's gifts had a strong week. Confectionery sales increased by 36% and flower sales grew by 78%. Sparkling wine sales went up 83%.

Away from Valentine's indulgence, there were some strong sales of fruit. Cherries were up 90%, melons rose by 24% and blueberries saw an uplift of 16%.

Total sales for the week were £75.0m, down 0.2% on last year. 

Fashion sales were up 1.4% year on year, and the spring/summer range of our luxury, own brand range Modern Rarity proved very popular. Sales of beauty, wellbeing and leisure products were up 11.2% as customers bought gifts for Valentine's Day.  

Electrical and Home Technology sales were up 0.4% on last year, driven by sales of communications tech products which were up 6%. We saw strong demand for Apple Mac products.  

Sales of Home products were down 1.5% year on year, but sales of home accessories and gifts were up 8.5% as a result of customers buying presents for Valentine's Day. This week we will be launching popular, US brand West Elm in our Cambridge and Welwyn shops.
