latest week compared with a year earlier.

 Total sales         4.9 pct         7.9 pct

 Food stores         6.3 pct         8.0 pct
 	
"The warmer weather, which boosted fashion sales, did more than
enough to overcome the threat of fuel shortages and lack of
Mother's Day in week nine this year," John Lewis said of the
department store outcome.	
    "We came in with sales 2.4 percent up on last year with
Poole the top performing branch, beating last year by 19
percent."
