Overview & Outlook

Commenting on the third quarter’s performance Jason Hargreaves, Managing Director of Matalan, said: “I would like to thank all our colleagues for their hard work and commitment over the last quarter.

"The focus in recent months on our Ladieswear offer, product availability, and online growth delivered an improving trend through the period after a difficult start. We then carried this improvement through December.
