LONDON — British retailer French Connection saw an uptick in its U.K. and European retail sales, but the company is taking a cautious view of the coming months.
In the 16 weeks ending Nov. 25, retail sales in the U.K. and Europe increased 3.7 percent compared with the same period last year. The company said Wednesday it was helped by “strong growth” in its French Connection women’s wear and in the Toast mail order brand. On a same-store sales basis, retail sales in the region grew 1 percent.
