Greggs enjoys Christmas Week sales surge

Over the four week Christmas trading period to 26 December 2009 total sales grew by 3.1 per cent and like-for-like sales grew by 1.1 per cent against strong comparatives in the prior year. Christmas week saw like-for-like sales up 4.4 per cent as the company served 250,000 more customers than in the comparable week last year. For the financial year as a whole, total sales increased by 5.0 per cent (including a 1.6 per cent contribution from the 53rd week) and like-for-like sales increased by 0.8 per cent.

During the year the Group opened 49 new shops and closed 39, making a net addition of 10 new shops and a total of 1,419 at 2 January 2010. Chief Executive Ken McMeikan commented: "I am very pleased with our sales performance, particularly over Christmas, in what has remained a challenging trading environment for the high street. We expect to report results in line with expectations when we make our preliminary results announcement on 18 March 2010."
