Home falls back again for John Lewis

jlathomeJohn Lewis saw home sales fall back into the red last week.

After previously registering its first increase in home sales in a month, the chain saw sales slip back in the week to 20 May.
Home sales dropped by 2.2% in the week and are now down 0.6% in the 16 week period.
‘Total sales for the week were £76.3m, up 1.1% on last year. Fashion sales were up 4.9% year on year, driven by customers buying casual clothing ahead of the anticipated warmer weather and summer holidays. Sales of womenswear were up 7%, and menswear grew by 6.3%. Beauty, wellbeing and leisure also performed well with sales up 14.2% year on year due to price matching a competitor's promotional event,’ said Amanda Dammers, John Lewis
head of shop trade, central and Midlands.
‘Electrical and home technology sales were up 0.8% year on year. Home sales were down 2.2% year on year, but there was an increase in customers placing deposits for future orders.’
