John Lewis has recorded its best ever sales week and seen the soundtrack to its Christmas advert top the official singles chart.

The retailer’s sales for the week ending Saturday 8 December rose 15% year on year to £142m, which John Lewis is attributing to the success of its “omnichannel strategy”.

Sales increased both in-store and online with johnlewis.com hitting record weekly sales of £42m and its best ever single day, which saw the online operation claw in £7.3m on “Mega Monday”, the retail sector’s busiest shopping day.
