Successful week for John Lewis

John Lewis had a great start to the post-Christmas period, with sales surpassing the £150m mark once again at 23% up on last year. The week includes the first day of Clearance in shops which last year fell into the previous week's trade.

Home was up 17% on last year. Furniture, Textiles and Carpets enjoyed their biggest weeks ever. Some special mention needs to be made for the performance of Beds and Bedroom, up 28% on last year.

In terms of channels, it was a very good week for both branches and online. All but one branch beat last year. Johnlewis.com continued its impressive performance at 35% up on last year, with another exceptional week for smartphone traffic.
