Greggs Q3 Total Sales, LFL Sales Up; FY View Unchanged - Quick Facts

Greggs Plc (GRG.L), a bakery food-on-the-go retailer, Tuesday reported that its third-quarter total sales went up 12.4 percent from the prior year. Company-managed shop like-for-like sales for the 13 weeks to September 28 grew 7.4 percent, on top of last year's 3.2 percent increase.

In its trading update, Greggs said it continued to trade very strongly, driven predominantly by growth in customer numbers.
