Sainsbury's can't seem to catch a break. As some rivals in the UK supermarkets sector start to recover, the company has turned in another sales fall and even its previously resilient fashion offer's sales dropped in Q1.
Sainsbury’s may be bruised after its merger plan with Asda failed to get competition authority approval, but the company is still getting on with business as usual even if meaningful sales growth remains elusive.
Sainsbury's has announced that it will buy Asda with the latter's owner Walmart taking a big stake in the combined firm. And both chains will continue, which means the Tu Clothing and George lines will carry on too.
