However, Mr Mayfield was confident of John Lewis Partnership weathering any storm, and said: "Consumer spending is continuing to hold up well against a backdrop of the recent turmoil in the financial markets, higher interest rates and a more subdued housing market. We are confident that our partners will continue to set us apart from the competition, enabling both our busineeses to achieve further growth."
Overall, the group's pre-tax profits, which includes those of Waitrose, rose 50.6pc to £146.4m.
