Home dips for John Lewis despite furniture and textiles growth

JL17John Lewis saw home sales dip in the past week, despite increases cross several sectors, as outdoor furniture sales failed to match last year’s performance thanks to the very different weather.


‘Home sales were down 0.1% as warmer weather this time in 2016 significantly drove sales of outdoor living in the same week last year. Cooking and dining had a good week, with sales rising by 4.2%, and textiles and carpets also saw growth, with bed linen in particular up 9.4%. Furniture was also up year on year as fitted furniture enjoyed double digit growth,’ said Sienna Veit, John Lewis
online product director.
‘Total sales for the week were £82.8m, up 2.3% on last year. Fashion saw the strongest sales growth, up 3.9% year on year. Casualwear in particular performed well, seeing double-digit growth for both men and women. Beauty, wellbeing and leisure also had a strong week, up 14.6%, with sales of premium beauty brands helping drive the uplift.
‘EHT sales were up 3.8%. Mobile and photo continued its strong performance, up 36.4%, as new products continue to drive sales. New launches also supported sales within vision, which saw an uplift of 7.9%, as both Sony and LG launched new OLED televisions.’
Home sales for the 14 week period were down by 0.8%.
