Morrisons reports fourth consecutive Christmas of growth

The Morrisons supermarket chain’s like-for-like sales rose by 3.6% excluding fuel in the nine weeks to 6 January to mark the fourth consecutive Christmas of like-for-like sales growth for the retailer.

Like-for-like retail sales edged up 0.6% while wholesale sales climbed by 3%.

Meanwhile, total sales were up 4% when fuel was excluded.

The company said customer satisfaction had increased “significantly” in the period.

David Potts, Morrisons chief executive, said: "Our performance shows colleagues are listening hard and responding to customers, providing consistently great value and good quality when it matters most. I would once again like to thank the whole Morrisons team for what they continue to do for our customers. Morrisons is well set to keep improving the shopping trip and become more and more relevant for more customers."
