M&S Road to Recovery
Marks & Spencer appears to be on the road to recovery the retail chain's boss Stuart Rose acknowledged today, attributing the good news to the high volume of pre-Christmas sales.
The M&S chief executive said like-for-like sales - which ignore sales at new stores - in the October to December period were up 5.6% on the same period a year ago.
Food sales have increased at the store with figures up by 3.6% on the same period a year ago.
A spokesman for the retail chain said the well-received advertising campaign was partly responsible for the increase in the demand for M&S food.
Rose said: "We have now delivered growth on growth in all areas of our business, thus completing the first part of our recovery plan."
