Sales break £80m mark as clearance continues at John Lewis

John Lewis recorded a “positive week’s trade” last week as sales topped £80m for the second week running.

The 6.7% increase on last year, to £80.74m, was a result of “strong performance in summer clearance” supported by “encouraging full price sales.”

Fashion was up 4.7% and accounted for almost half of the clearance sales for the week to June 29.

A rise in temperatures saw a hike of 76% on sunglasses and suncare at John Lewis compared to the same period last year.

Online sales also experienced a “strong” week and were up 20.2% versus last year.

Tamworth was the strongest performing branch across the week as a whole, up 16.7%, followed by Norwich which was up 11.5%.

However sales at High Wycombe fell 10.5%, while Poole dropped 8.7%.

This week sees further markdowns and a third burst of clearance marketing at the department store.
