    M&S chairman tells investors there's no quick fix

    Shareholders in Marks & Spencer (MKS.L) should not be overly concerned about its financial results over the next two years because those numbers are not that important to the clothing and food retailer's future, its new chairman told them on Tuesday. Retail veteran Archie Norman joined M&S as chairman in September last year and two months later the company detailed its latest attempt at a turnaround after more than a decade of failed reinventions. The plan included a five-year programme of store closures and relocations to cut excess selling space in its clothing business, increased technology investment and moves to make a misfiring food business more competitive.

    Sainsbury's pins sales growth slowdown on price cuts, not Asda deal

    Sainsbury's, Britain's second biggest supermarket group, said sales growth slowed over the past three months because it pushed through price cuts, denying it had been distracted by its deal to take over rival Asda. Although Sainsbury's food trading performance is lagging rivals, its shares are by up over a third this year on the back of April's agreed 7.3 billion pounds takeover of Walmart owned Asda. The combination, which would overtake Tesco as Britain's biggest supermarket chain, is being looked at by Britain's regulator, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA).
