Wickes has posted rising sales for its fourth quarter in 2019 as the DIY group’s demerger from Travis Perkins remains “on track”.

Travis Perkins-owned Wickes’ like-for-like sales grew 4.5%, which the DIY retailer attributed to a strong performance across its core and ‘Do It For Me’ arms.

For the full year, like-for-like and total sales grew 8.7% and 7.7% respectively.

The planned demerger of Wickes from Travis Perkins – revealed last July – remains “on track”, chief executive David Wood said.
