Clearance sees fashion sales soar at John Lewis

The first week of Sale at John Lewis got off to a bumper start with fashion sales increasing by 27% year on year.

Kidswear was the strongest performing category in fashion, up 45% on 2014, while accessories increased by 37% ahead of last year driven by price-matching other promotions on the high street.

Total sales were up 9.6% to £124.30m, with online sales were boosted by 17% year on year. Click-and-collect was up 37%.

Barry Matheson, director of retail services at John Lewis, said: “There was a robust performance from shops, which benefited from the additional weekday before the New Year holiday. New format shops were very much to the fore in terms of percentage growth, while it was Welwyn that delivered the stand-out performance among the full-line shops.”
