John Lewis clothing sales up 6.5%

Clothing sales at John Lewis jumped 6.5% last week on the back of its clearance Sale and a good early reaction to new season lines.

John Lewis said it had battled with a number of external factors including mixed weather patterns to produce a set of “strong” results over the week to July 18, when total sales rose 5.3% to £52.61million.

Within the retailer’s 27-strong portfolio, 16 stores matched or bettered last year’s performance, with stores in High Wycombe, Southampton and London’s Peter Jones the best performers.

David Barford, director of selling operations, Region B, John Lewis said: “As we move into the final weeks of the half we have significant opportunity that the school holiday provides; in Scotland this is of course already well under way. We have some excellent new-season product coming while still dealing with pockets of Clearance.”
