The Bookseller’s Alison Flood reports that Woolworths subsidiary EUK saw third party sales for the 25 weeks to 28th July increase by 36.2%, the company said today, in what it described as “a period of considerable operational change and challenge for the business. Woolworths said that the books market “continues to perform solidly” for EUK, but the traditional music market is in decline. The games market is showing strong growth, while sales of DVDs have been higher than anticipated, “in part because of the unseasonable weather”. The news follows the Competition Commission‘s move last week to provisionally clear EUK’s acquisition of Bertrams.
