Marks & Spencer see boom in sales

Marks & Spencer has stemmed the rate of sales decline in its crucial fashion division and hailed further growth in full-price sales.

The high-street stalwart said clothing and home sales fell 1.2% on a like-for-like basis in the 13 weeks to July 1 and inched down 0.5% on a total basis to £852.1m.

Full-price sales in clothing and home jumped 7% as M&S pressed ahead with its strategy to reduce the number of items sold on promotion.

Indeed, the retailer held no clearance Sale during the quarter, compared with one last year.

The figures mark an improvement from Marks & Spencer’s year to April 1, when like-for-like sales in clothing and home fell 3.4%, following a sharp 5.9% decline during its fourth quarter.

Marks & Spencer has stemmed the rate of sales decline in its crucial fashion division and hailed further growth in full-price sales.

However, on a constant currency basis, international sales were down 4% after M&S closed 28 of the 53 stores in the markets it is exiting, as the retailer revealed last November.

M&S boss Steve Rowe said: “Trading in the first quarter was in line with our expectations and we are on track with delivery of the plan we announced last year.

“I am pleased that we continue to grow full-price sales in clothing and home, with reduced discounting and no clearance Sale in the quarter.

“In our food business, we delivered strong growth from new Simply Food openings, and are prioritising better ranging and stronger promotions.”

a person's burden will be to have an understanding of other areas within your business enterprise: profits, promotion, legalised, funding plus it, management, promotion, homework plus progression, supplement progression, etcetera. It's going to take a substantial amount of time for them to find out every area within your business enterprise plus make sure they are performing accurately. It is really a strong never-ending approach.

With the effect of digitalization, there are a lot of companies in existence now, but back in the days of 1990s, there were only a countable number of companies which used to rule the internet world. American Online or Aolmail.com is one of them.
