John Lewis sales breaks £100m for second consecutive week

John Lewis has reported weekly sales of more than £100m for the second week in a row as shoppers rushed out to buy Christmas gifts, and outerwear following the continued cold snap.

The high street department store saw sales increase 2.1% year on year to reach £111.9m last week.

John Lewis said sales rose 10.3% week-on-week as shoppers snapped up Christmas- related items, such Christmas stockings and sacks.

The continuing cold weather led to strong sales of outerwear across menswear, womenswear and kidswear, with hats, scarves, gloves and slippers selling well and cashmere products proving popular.

Maggie Porteous, director selling operations at John Lewis said: ‘It has been pleasing to see sales surpassing the £100m mark for the second time this month with strong figures coming from both our shops and online.

“We have been up against tough comparisons this week with Black Friday falling into a different week this year – but looking at the two year figure of +13.3% sales are encouraging.”
