Britain's Halfords maintains profit guidance on solid trading

LONDON, Sept 5 (Reuters) - British bicycles and car part retailer Halfords maintained its full year profit guidance on Tuesday as it reported retail like-for-like sales growth of 3.5 percent in the 20 weeks to August 18.

Halfords said it optimised sales from the “staycation summer”, with more Britons opting to holiday at home due to the weaker pound.

The firm said it saw strong growth in camping, roof boxes and cycle carriers. (Reporting by Emma Rumney, editing by James Davey)
