Fall at Rosebys

ROSEBYS, the furniture retailer, added to the high street gloom, reporting a 5 per cent fall in same-store sales in current trading. The figure compares with a 20 per cent increase at the same time last year.

Although Rosebys' shares fell 7p to 156.5p, the company confirmed plans to increase its store portfolio from 450 to 510 under its Rosebys, Knightingales and Bensons Beds formats.
