United Co-op Post Good Figures

A month ahead of the AGM and a couple of weeks before the "merger" meetings United Co-operative publishes it trading figures for 2006. Turnover 2.2 billion GBP - 52 week year, 2005 was 2.5 billion on a 53 week year. Pre-tax profits were up to 62.4 million GBP - though some of that was exceptional items - that usually means disposing property as the Co-op disengages itself from having large stores.
Food sales 1.01 billion (921m - 2006), retail pharmacy 220m (152m - 2006), travel sales 555m (568m), motor sales 285m (311m).
