Total sales across the department store chain rose 4.8% year on year to a record £187.7m during the period - up 60.1% on the preceding week.

Online sales were up 15.5% year on year. John Lewis said its distribution teams processed 18% more parcels on Black Friday (November 27) and the following Saturday and Sunday, compared to 2014.

Dino Rocos, operations director at John Lewis, said: “Black Friday marks the first of the three peaks of Christmas and there was huge anticipation for the day this year and high expectations to meet.

“I’m very proud of the fact that we delivered successfully for our customers, this is testament to the work of our partners [staff] both on Black Friday itself and in our forward-planning.

“Looking ahead, our teams in our shops and online operations are ready for another busy week as we go into the first full week of December.”
