John Lewis sales up 2.5% last week

DEPARTMENT STORES
2 August 2017 | by The Retail Bulletin
Online sales climbed by 7.2%.
Home sales had a strong week with sales up 7.7% on the same week last year. The uplift was partly driven by a 19.2% increase in bed linen sales and a 17.5% rise in the beds and bedroom furniture category as the retailer offered its last week of ‘Special Buy’ sales.

Fashion sales increased by 1.5% with the biggest rise coming from the beauty, wellbeing and leisure category where sales climbed by 5.8%.
Meanwhile, electrical and home technology sales were down 0.5% although sales of DIY home products, such as the Honda Petrol Ride on Lawnmower, were up 67%.
