The John Lewis Partnership, which is regarded as a barometer of British retailing, said sales rose sharply last week as Christmas shoppers took to the High Street.

The renowned employee-owned department store said sales at its 28 department stores grew 11.5% to £77 million in the week to 13 November, compared with the same period a year ago.

Managing Director, Andy Street, said: “With very strong figures from last year against us, our results last week are a clear sign that the steep sales climb towards Christmas has begun in earnest”.

Meanwhile, sales at its Waitrose supermarket chain continue to rise – cementing its current position as one of the UK’s fastest growing supermarket.
