UPDATE 1-Sainsbury's is only 'big four' UK supermarket growing sales - Kantar

 (Adds details, table)
    LONDON, March 3 (Reuters) - Sainsbury's was the
only one of Britain's "big four" supermarkets to record
year-on-year sales growth in the 12 weeks to Feb. 23, although
it still lost market share to discounters Aldi and Lidl,
according to researchers Kantar.
    Sales at Sainsbury's rose 0.3%, Kantar said on Tuesday,
whereas market leader Tesco recorded a dip of 0.8%,
Asda was down 1.2% and Morrisons fell 2.0%.
    Lidl was the fastest growing supermarket for the first time
since 2017, with sales up 11.4% in the period, taking its market
share to 5.8%, Kantar said. Its bigger rival Aldi            
recorded growth of 5.7%, giving it a 7.9% market share.
    The impact of the coronavirus crisis has been seen at the
tills, with sales of hand sanitiser up 255% in February while
liquid soaps grew by 7%, Kantar said.
