FASHION retailer New Look saw a 1.5 per cent increase in like-for-like sales over the Christmas period, a spokesperson confirmed yesterday.

The UK’s second-largest women’s value store did not discount its products heavily, unlike its rivals, and still managed modest growth in the last seven weeks of last year.

Despite the positive news, New Look saw a decline compared to winter 2012/13, when it reported a 3.7 per cent like-for-like increase in sales.
