Tesco Posts Fastest Sales Growth Since June: Kantar Worldpanel
Tesco has posted its fastest sales growth since June 2017, seeing sales up 3.1% in the 12 weeks to 31 December, according to the latest UK market share data by Kantar Worldpanel.
The retailer, which sits on 28.0% market share, was boosted by a 6.4% increase in sales of standard Tesco own label during the period, while its convenience store portfolio also benefited from longer opening hours on Christmas Eve, which fell on a Sunday.
However, Tesco’s market share is 20 basis points lower than at this time last year (28.2%).
