Majestic Wine like-for-like sales up 1.1% over Christmas

Majestic Wine saw its like-for-like UK store sales grow by 1.1% in the seven weeks to 31 December in what was a “challenging” Christmas for the specialist wine retailer. During the same period, total UK store sales rose by 5.1%.

This result brings Majestic’s like-for- like UK store sales growth to 0.8% for the first 39 weeks of the financial year.

Commenting on the figures, Majestic chief executive Steve Lewis said: "While we saw encouraging sales growth over the period, the Christmas trading season was challenging with many consumers leaving their shopping until the very last moment. I would like to thank all those customers who chose to purchase the wine for their Christmas celebrations from Majestic."
