Earlier this month Aldi UK and Lidl UK, the British grocery arms of the German discount supermarkets, reported total sales growth for December of "over 15 percent" and 16 percent respectively, driven by aggressive store opening programmes, but with some comparable store sales growth. Liverpool, northwest England-based B&M, which trades as B&M Bargains and B&M Homestore in the UK, said on Friday group sales rose 22.7 percent in the 13 weeks to Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) .

    Results drive sharp moves in European stocks as euro weighs

    European shares dipped on Thursday as a bond market sell-off and a stronger euro took the steam out of the breakneck New Year rally in equities. The pan-European STOXX 600 (.STOXX) and euro zone equities (.STOXXE) ended the session 0.3 percent lower, extending sharp losses in the previous session when jitters over a report that China was considering slowing purchases of U.S. Treasury bonds spilled over into stocks. While the STOXX was roughly flat for most of the morning session, the index dipped followed the release of minutes from the European Central Bank's December meeting showing that the ECB should revisit its policy message in early 2018.

    M&S shares tumble 7% after Christmas sales fall leaves sour taste

    Shares (Berlin: DI6.BE - news) in M&S have fallen sharply after sales declines in both its clothing and food divisions left a sour taste in the mouth for investors.

M&S blamed unseasonal autumn weather as clothing and homeware sales dropped by 2.8% in the 13 weeks to 30 December while food - until recently a stellar performer for the company - slid by 0.4%.

    Britain's M&S feels heat from mild October as sales stumble

    Marks & Spencer's clothes and sales fell in the last quarter of 2017, hampering the British retailer's latest attempt at a corporate turnaround and knocking its shares. Once a venerable British institution, M&S faces unrelenting competition on the high street and online, while efforts to revitalise its 134-year-old business are being held back by a squeeze on consumers as inflation rises and wage growth falters. “I would describe the consumer as quite fragile and quite volatile and if there’s a reason not to spend they take it,” M&S Chief Executive Steve Rowe told reporters.

    Contrasting fortunes for UK retailers over key Christmas period

    Tesco has enjoyed its best Christmas since 2010, a detail packed with symbolism, as that was its last under Sir Terry Leahy, the chief executive who turned the company into the world's second-largest retailer and whose departure heralded several years of turmoil. Tesco's UK like-for-like sales - the measure the City takes most seriously because it takes no account of store openings or refurbishments and is the best indicator of underlying sales performance - were up by 1.9% during the six weeks to January 6.

    Unwanted gifts spoil Tesco's Christmas

    Tesco's (TSCO.L) Christmas trading missed forecasts as strong food sales were offset by weak demand for items such as DVDs and computer games, showing that even Britain's biggest supermarket chain is feeling the strain as consumers curb their spending. Market research this week had identified Tesco as a festive winner, but the group said lower sales of general merchandise and the collapse of a tobacco supplier cast a shadow over a record week of trading before Dec. 25. Britons, whose spending power has been squeezed by inflation, prioritised food this Christmas and cut back on nearly everything else, industry data has shown.
