LONDON, Aug 3 (Reuters) – British retailer John Lewis
on Friday gave the following sales figures
for the latest week compared with a year earlier.
Week to July 26 weeks to July 28
Total sales 11.0 pct 9.1 pct
Dept stores 6.2 pct 12.9 pct
Food stores 13.6 pct 7.0 pct

the final week. Demand was sapped by the spell of hot weather
and the opening of the London 2012 Games,” John Lewis said of
the department stores outcome.
