Uni students spend big on double duvets

Department store retailer John Lewis has revealed that sales of double bedding has risen “substantially” due to university students.

John Lewis said that sales of its affordable ANYDAY double duvet has overtaken its single counterpart, with sales of double duvets more than 75% higher than singles over the back to uni period and pillows up 28% compared to the previous week.

It comes as a poll of 500 students found that more than a third (36%) most missed their own bed while away at university, closely followed by having their favourite meal cooked for them (35%).

Olivia Shykles, Bedding Buyer at John Lewis, said: “Whether you’re a first-year student packing for halls, returning to a final year house share, or a parent waving them off – the departure for uni is a big right of passage. This year, students are most certainly investing in little luxuries and upgrading their sleep experience.”
