Tough retail environment hits Card Factory's quarterly sales

May 31 (Reuters) - Card Factory Plc reported a 0.4 percent fall in like for like sales, as it cautioned on a tough retail environment with fewer customers visiting their stores.

“We have had a solid start to the year with further sales growth despite an ongoing sector trend of subdued footfall, which impacted the like-for-like performance,” Chief Executive Karen Hubbard said.

The company left its full-year outlook unchanged and said it was on track to open about 50 stores in the full year.
