Marks & Spencer, Tesco, Debenhams, Primark and JD Sports lead flurry of Christmas trading news – business live – The Guardian
We are very encouraged by the sustained strong progress that we are making across the Group. In the UK, we saw our eighth consecutive quarter of volume growth and delivered a third successful Christmas. Our fresh food ranges proved particularly popular, outperforming the market with great quality, innovative new products and even more affordable prices. Internationally, we have continued to focus on improving our offer for customers in challenging market conditions.
We are well-placed against the plans we shared in October to become more competitive for customers, simpler for colleagues, and an even better partner for our suppliers, whilst creating long-term value for our shareholders.
I would like to thank all of our colleagues for everything they have done to serve our customers brilliantly over this very busy period.”
