LONDON – Marks and Spencer’s recovery continues. The British retailer said Tuesday that its sales rose 10.4 percent in the 13 weeks ended July 1, compared to the same period last year. It marks the retailer’s fourth quarter of consecutive sales growth.

In the quarter, clothing rose 10.7 percent and home increased 23.3 percent. Same store sales gained 8.3 percent.

However, M&S chief executive Stuart Rose cautioned that the rise in sales was against “soft comparatives” from the previous year.
