John Lewis Partnership weekly sales growth has plateaued, as its eponymous department store chain once again dragged the overall results. For the week ending February 9, sales at the parent company of Waitrose and John Lewis remained steady, with sales growing marginally from from £200.82 million to £200.89 million year-on-year. Between the partnership’s two retail chains, John Lewis was once again the weakest link with a weekly sales decline of 3.2 per cent year-on-year – although this was an improvement on the 4.4 per cent weekly sales decline it booked last week. Meanwhile at Waitrose, weekly sales grew 1.9 per cent year-on-year, but this was slower growth compared to last week when sales grew 4.1 per cent year-on-year.
