PRESS ROUND-UP SHORT (PREMIUM)
At least 20 retailers will reveal how they performed over the festive period this week, with Tesco expected to be one of the Christmas winners but Marks & Spencer continuing to struggle. Others due to update investors include Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, John Lewis, House of Fraser and fast-growing discounter B&M. With little sales growth to be found, it is not expected to be a vintage year for any company as consumer confidence and spending power remains weak. – Guardian.
