Booker announces Christmas trading figures

Booker has announced sales slightly ahead for the Christmas and New Year period.

Like-for-like non-tobacco sales were up 2.4%, but Booker said like-for-like tobacco sales declined by 7.9% due to the ban on smoking in public places. It added that sales, stock, profits and net debt remain in line with management expectations.
