Retail Week looks ahead to the next seven days, with updates from Marks & Spencer, Morrisons and Supergroup all on the agenda.
Marks & Spencer
The retailer unveils half-year results on Wednesday. Boss Marc Bolland has reportedly told the board he wants to stay on for another two years and signs of recovery would be welcome.
However, like-for-like sales at M&S’s fashion arm fell in the second quarter after rising for the first time in four years during its first quarter.
The grocer issues its third-quarter update on Thursday as the City looks for signs of improvement under chief executive David Potts.
The new boss unveiled his six-point plan to revive the supermarket giant at its half-year results last month, when it reported a 35% fall in pre-tax profits to £117m.
The fashion retailer updates on its trading on Thursday.
Supergroup has been gaining momentum after a strong finish to its last financial year.
The retailer has revealed that sales in the first 10 weeks of its current financial year rose 34.5% and like-for-likes soared 20.3% against weak comparatives.
