Morrisons sales are up thanks to ‘best ever Halloween’


Morrisons has totted up a full year of sales growth, with its “biggest ever” Halloween helping cement the supermarket’s turnaround, reports The Independent.

The grocery giant said like-for-like sales in the third quarter rose 1.6 per cent, with Halloween turnover up around 20 per cent.

The figures represent a fourth consecutive quarter of sales growth amid a turnaround plan under chief executive David Potts, who took the helm last year following the removal of former boss Dalton Philips.
