John Lewis fashion sales fall

Fashion sales at John Lewis fell by 1.9% last week compared to the same period last year.

The retailer’s total sales for the week to 28 October 2017 were down 4% to £98.7m.

John Lewis blamed the dip on “unseasonably” warm weather across the country and fewer promotions being run on fashion and beauty products than last year.

Halloween products provided a boost, however, as sales were up 19%.
