DIY group Kingfisher's sales up 22% as stores reopen after lockdown

LONDON, June 17 (Reuters) - Home improvement group Kingfisher said on Wednesday its underlying sales increased 21.8% year-on-year in its second quarter so far to June 13 as its stores across Europe emerged from coronavirus lockdowns.

Kingfisher, which owns B&Q and Screwfix in Britain and Castorama and Brico Depot in France and other markets, said it could not provide specific guidance for its 2020-21 year given the uncertainty around the pandemic.
