Rotherham’s Crawshaw Group sees sales decrease following a quiet festive period
Rotherham meat retailer Crawshaw Group has reported a 3% decrease in like for like sales for the 9 weeks ending 28th December.
The meat retailer claims it expected this small decrease given that sales for the comparable period last year were particularly strong, rising by 21%.
Gross margin in the period has showed a further improvement of 1% over the prior year and therefore the Company’s cash margin has increased year on year.
Year to date like for like sales are up 6%.
Richard Rose, chairman, said: “Our customers continue to appreciate our quality and value and so customer satisfaction remains high. Our new factory shop has got off to a great start and is trading above expectation giving us much confidence as we plan our accelerated store opening program.
