John Lewis fashion sales up 7.7%

Fashion sales rose 7.7% at John Lewis last week as the department store chain said it was “well placed” to take advantage of the colder weather.

John Lewis saw sales increase 7.2% to £58.5m while online sales rocketed by 40% last week. The company said its Peter Jones store in Sloane Square, London was the best performing store, up 9%.

John Lewis operational development director Lesley Ballantyne said: “The week ahead sees trade last year lift towards the Christmas peak and, with stocks of seasonal merchandise in good supply, we are well placed to take advantage of the colder weather than has been forecast for the coming week.”
