Store homeware LFL sales saw a significant drop of -8.29% from a solid base of +8.30% for the same week last year, indicating the category's twelfth negative result so far in 2024.
Total in-store LFL sales also fell by -2.06% from a strong base of +10.12% for the same week last year. Conversely, total non-store LFL sales surged by +22.95% from a base of +2.08% for the same week last year.

BDO commented on the results, stating: 'Strong non-store sales across all retail segments boosted total LFL sales in the week, which included the Easter Monday bank holiday. This week's non-store sales result is the channel's strongest since the penultimate week of December 2023, which was also the final week of trading before Christmas.'
