Record Christmas for Tesco's online grocery business


In Clothing & Home, meanwhile, while revenue grew in-store and online in the weeks leading up to Christmas, the performance was hampered by an unseasonably warm October, which meant the retailer carried more stock into the December sale.

The retailer hailed a "strong" third-quarter performance in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland, with United Kingdom like-for-like sales up 2.3% in the period and 1.9% over the Christmas trading season.

The group also reported data for the third quarter, with United Kingdom like-for-like sales up 2.3%, having increased 2.1% in the second quarter.

Tesco saw its biggest ever sales week in the United Kingdom over Christmas, with 58 million customer transactions and 770,000 online grocery deliveries in one week.

"Our fresh food ranges performed particularly well, as did F&F Clothing, which saw double-digit growth", said Andrew Yaxley, chief executive of Tesco Ireland.

"Our trading momentum accelerated across the third quarter and into December, with the four weeks leading up to Christmas Day delivering record sales and volumes in the United Kingdom", he added.

Tesco's update is the latest from the so called Big Four supermarkets, which also includes Sainsbury's, Asda and Morrisons. The company's clothing & home sales in the United Kingdom were down 2.3 percent to 1,192 million pounds (1,607.8 million dollars), while the segment's like-for-like sales dropped 2.8 percent.

Sales of Marks & Spencer clothes and food fell in the last quarter of 2017, denting the British retailer's latest attempt at a corporate turnaround and knocking its shares.

Its like-for-like sales growth was 1.9 percent and food rose by 3.4 percent. The shares fell 4.6 per cent to 202p.

However, when taking all of the Big 4 retailer's worldwide markets into account, total like-for-like sales grew by 0.6 per cent during that period, but overall sales enjoyed a 1.8 per cent uplift.

The declines reported were still not as steep as some feared after profit warnings from the likes of Debenhams, Moss Bros and Mothercare. Both retailers reported updates in line with expectations with no change to their full year forecasts.
