Tu clothing sales grow by double digits

Top client Sainsbury’s clothing sales grow by double digits in the three months to June 7.

Clothing and general merchandise were among the strongest-performers for Sainsbury’s, with clothing singled out as trading “particularly well”.

Although the figures are not revealed, Sainsbury’s did reference “double-digit” sales figures for that division.

Sainsbury’s is to start selling clothes online for the first time, through a trial initially taking place in the Midlands, with a potential roll-out to the rest of the UK in 2015.
