Deja vu for John Lewis
John Lewis again saw a drop in home sales but a major increase in outdoor sales in the past week.
Home sales repeated the pattern of recent weeks with a drop of 5.2% in the week to 17 June.
‘While home sales were down, the warm weather drove a 55% increase in outdoor living sales compared to last year,’ said Johnathan Marsh, John Lewis electricals and home technology buying director.
Marsh also revealed that sales of fans rose by 1000% in the week.
Total sales were down 1.4% to £78.15m in the week, with home sales down 1% in the 20 week period.
