An update from do-it-yourself chain Kingfisher, which runs UK retailer B&Q and French counterpart Castorama, suggests it is keeping some of its lockdown-inspired lustre. Sales were 5 per cent lower than last year, when domestic projects replaced days out for many households. The market still sees Kingfisher as inescapably cyclical.
B&Q owner Kingfisher has reported "resilient" trading in its latest quarter as supply chain troubles began to ease.
The expansion will create 800 new retail jobs.
