The floor covering retailer Carpetright's store refurbishment programme helped drive an uplift in UK sales in its latest quarter but it suffered torrid trading in the Netherlands.

The carpets market leader has modernised 122 stores and hailed the success of other "self-help" initiatives, such as expanding its beds offer, better logistics and improved fitting services. These helped its UK like-for-like sales rise 3.2 per cent over the 13 weeks to 26 January.
