The department store's best performing branches continue to be its At Home stores.
While the chain saw overall sales jump by 15.3% in the week to 7 July, its four established At Home stores continued to be the star performers. Poole saw sales jump by 40.2%, Swindon by 26.5%, Croydon by 23.2% and Tunbridge Wells by 18.8%.
'The continued miserable weather, coupled with the third week of a successful Clearance, saw customers heading to our shops for some retail therapy. The best results were delivered by the maturing at home branches – Poole, Swindon, Croydon and Tunbridge Wells – and congratulations also go to the Scottish branches which achieved some of the best results in our full-line estate. The team at johnlewis.com also delivered another week to celebrate with sales an impressive +45% on last year,' says Paula Nickolds John Lewis, Home buying director.
