S4labour’s weekly sales figures analysis has identified that like-for-likes are up for the fifth week in a row by 11.5%; when compared to the same week in 2019.
The like-for-like growth is mainly due to non-London sites experiencing a 15.5% increase in like-for-like sales last week. London sites, however, saw their like-for-likes fall 3.5%.
In light of this sustained growth, Richard Hartley — S4labour’s Chief Innovation Officer — commented: “Yet again, the fact hospitality like-for-likes are up as we reach the end of September is reassuring. However, the recent petrol supply & demand issue affecting HGV drivers may impact the hospitality sector.”
