McColl’s Retail Group lifts revenues by 0.6% in Q3 and transitions stores to Morrisons’ supply – | Convenience | Scoop.it
McColl's Retail Group has reported a 0.6% increase in sales for the third quarter and up 12.0% for the year to date. 

However, Q3 like-for-like (LFL) sales were down 0.9%, supported by a period of hot weather, but still impacted by supply chain disruption following the failure of Palmer & Harvey (P&H).

McColl's said the transition to Morrisons' supply in 1,300 stores was completed in mid-August, ahead of the original schedule. Investment in the estate continues apace, the retailer added. Twenty six store refreshes were completed in the quarter, bringing the total since inception to 80 and delivering average sales uplifts above 5%.
