John Lewis looks to the Bank Holiday for a sales boost
John Lewis is looking to boost sales over the Bank Holiday weekend, after a week of growth both online and offline.


The multichannel department store is looking particularly to its stores for the boost over the coming three-day weekend.

“We enter the final week of August in good form and the Bank Holiday weekend gives us numerous opportunities to capture trade from the additional footfall that will be in our shops and extend our recent fine form,” Barry Matheson, director, retail services, at John Lewis, said.

The comments came in John Lewis’ weekly figures, which showed total sales up by 7.6% in the week to August 17, despite strong Jubilee and Olympics sales a year earlier.

Sales at Johnlewis.com were up by 19.5% in the week, with “impressive” online growth in the entertainment and home directorate.
