Greggs' sales figures fall flat

Bakery chain Greggs revealed a fall in Christmas sales as last month's wet weather saw shoppers stay away from the high street and choose the shelter of shopping centres.

Newcastle-based Greggs saw like-for-like sales slide 2.9% in the five weeks to January 5, marking a further fall on the 2.6% dip seen in the quarter to October 6.
