    Halfords profit falls as weaker pound lifts costs

    Weakness in the currency since Britain's vote to leave the European Union has raised Halfords' sourcing costs, prompting it to implement a plan to reduce the impact, including working with suppliers and raising prices. Sterling's depreciation resulted in a rise of 15 million pounds to Halfords' cost of sales in first half, which the company said was in line with its forecast of a total of 25 million pounds for the full year. At current exchange rates this impact will reduce significantly going forward," Chief Financial Officer Jonny Mason said on a post-earnings call.

    McDonald faces tough task to look good in M&S fashion

    Jill McDonald picks up something of a poisoned chalice when she starts as boss of clothing at Marks & Spencer (Frankfurt: 534418 - news) on Monday, with little room to manoeuvre as she tackles one of the biggest jobs in British retailing on her first foray into fashion. McDonald's retail credentials are strong, but they were earned as CEO of bicycles to car parts company Halfords and she will have to work within a blueprint set out by her new boss as she looks to deliver the sustained sales and profit growth that has eluded M&S for a decade in competition with a burgeoning fast-fashion market. To compound matters, Rowe and predecessor Marc Bolland have already used sourcing directors Mark and Neal Lindsey to boost profit margins by changing the way M&S buys and makes clothes, taking away any easy gains for a new boss.

    Halfords sales driven by 'staycation summer'

    It has become a regular feature during the 15 months since the UK voted to leave the EU – a company, publishing their full or half year results, complains the subsequent drop in the pound has hit profits by pushing up their costs or eating into the disposable incomes of their customers. Its trading update on Tuesday, which also marks the swansong for outgoing chief executive Jill McDonald, indirectly credits the drop in the pound for encouraging people to take "staycations" at home this summer.

    Dip in food sales knocks M&S, as clothing shows signs of recovery

    A surprise dip in underlying food sales knocked shares in Marks & Spencer (Frankfurt: 534418 - news) on Tuesday, though the British retailer said its recovery remained on track thanks to a second consecutive quarterly increase in full-price clothing sales. Chief Executive Steve Rowe, a 27-year company veteran who took over in April 2016, said his strategy of reducing prices for entry-level clothing ranges, cutting back on clearance sales and promotions, and improving fit, availability and service was working. In clothing and homeware, M&S's full-price sales - a key guide to profitability - rose 7 percent in the 13 weeks to July 1, its fiscal first quarter, reflecting 27 fewer promotions in the quarter versus a year earlier and no clearance sale.
