Festive growth for UK wineseller

UK wineseller Majestic Wine has said it defied the pre-Christmas snow thanks to a surplus of stock in stores and the determination of shoppers. The group reported like-for-like sales growth of 3.7% in the nine weeks to January 3 as it kept stores trading throughout the adverse weather. Majestic said the weather conditions knocked around 1.5% to 2% off sales growth.
