JD Sports reports “robust” Christmas trading period

The retailer has reported a better than expected Christmas trading period, with like-for-like sales in the group’s sports fascias marginally ahead of the 5.8 per cent growth rate enjoyed during the first half of the year.

“Christmas 2013 has seen yet another very robust performance from our core sports fascias,” Peter Cowgill, JD’s executive chairman, says.

“Throughout recent years of considerable change and expansion for the group, the core sports fascias’ proposition has continued to be developed and enhanced.

“I am delighted that the most recent six weeks’ trading has continued to give confidence for the future.

“I also expect considerable further progress elsewhere in the group in 2014.”
