Sainsbury’s has upgraded its profit outlook as it makes “good progress against the plan to put food back at its heart”.
Sainsbury’s recorded like-for-like sales up 1.6% in the first quarter to June 26 as all of its categories outperformed expectations.
Online grocery sales did particularly well, up 29%, while grocery sales in general inched up 0.8%.
Clothing sales also jumped 58%, while general merchandise sales dropped by 1.4% compared with last year’s elevated levels, but still performed better than expected.
