John Lewis reports half-term sales lift

Sales at department store chain John Lewis rose 7.2% to £54m last week, when the retailer benefited from the half-term holiday south of the border.

Fashion sales rose 10% over the week to February 26.

On a two-week basis, taking account of the Scottish half-term the previous week, John Lewis’ sales were up 3.4%.

The retailer’s online business again put in the best performance, delivering a sales increase of 24.5% in the week. Three shops – Cambridge, Trafford and Leicester – achieved double-digit sales advances.
