At last: John Lewis & Partners sees home sales lift

After 13 weeks of falling home sales John Lewis & Partners - the chain officially rebranded itself today – has seen a sales increase.

‘Total sales for the week [to 1 September] were up 4.5% on last year, driven in part by a strong bank holiday performance and new seasonal launches,’ said Johnathan Marsh, John Lewis & Partners home buying director.

‘Home sales were up 2.1% driven by new season sales and our Off to University shop, which continues to do well.

Fashion sales were up 11.4%. Sales in womenswear were up 21.7% as customers shopped new pieces for the changing season and womenswear accessories were also up 10%.

‘Electrical and home technology sales were up 0.1%, with audio and mobile products performing well.’

Despite the increase home sales for the five week period were down 3%.
