John Lewis fashion sales up 2%

Fashion sales at John Lewis were up by 2% year on year for the week to June 18, as persistent poor weather across the UK was blamed for the sluggish performance. 

Clothing sales lagged behind the retailer’s total sales growth of 4.2%, while umbrella sales for the week showed a year on year increase of 239%.

Menswear defied the rain to post particularly strong figures for the week, with sales growing by 6.2%, driven largely by formalwear which was up 12.7%.
