John Lewis & Partners’ total sales were up 10.1% last week (to Saturday April 20).

“Home sales were up 11.6%. Sales of tabletop products were up 20.4% and gifts and candles were up 25% as customers prepared their homes for Easter celebrations.

“Electrical and home technology sales were up 10.2%. Warm weather saw sales of fans up 310% as customers invested in products to cool their homes.

“Fashion sales were up 9.3%. Own-brand clothing ranges Kin and Modern Rarity saw sales up 23% and 22% respectively. And John Lewis & Partners shops with Style Studios saw sales up 31% as customers looked to refresh their wardrobes for the summer season.”
