said third-quarter sales in the UK returned to growth
helped by a rise in online orders.
The company, which has been trying to revive its British
business that has come under pressure from tough competition,
said total sales in the UK for the 13 weeks to Jan. 7 rose 0.6
percent with online sales rising 5.5 percent.
Sales at UK stores open over a year rose 1 percent during
the quarter and online sales now represent about 40 percent of
its total UK sales, the company said.
