Greggs reports ‘stronger’ sales recovery than anticipated

UK bakery chain Greggs said that the recovery in its sales had been stronger than expected and that there would be a "Materially positive" impact on its full-year earnings. The chain, popular for its sausage rolls, said that sales in its stores had grown in recent weeks by as much as 3 per cent from 2019 levels. "Like-for-like sales growth in company-managed shops has remained in positive territory ranging between 1 and 3 per cent when measured against the same period in 2019," Greggs said on Monday, even as the impact of pent-up demand for retail has slipped. "This level of sustained sales recovery is stronger than we had anticipated and, if it were to continue, would have a materially positive impact on the expected financial result for the year," it said.
