LONDON — Burberry Group plc’s retail sales may have easily outstripped analysts’ estimates in the crucial third quarter, but sales on the shop floor remain soft.
Burberry said in its third-quarter trading update Tuesday that retail sales in the three months to Dec. 31 climbed 11.3 percent to 464 million pounds, or $747 million. Calculated at constant exchange rates, retail growth was 13 percent, with a 6 percent rise coming from same-store sales, and the balance from new stores.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
