Grand Union sees 13% rise in like-for-like sales in December 2012

London-based pub group Grand Union enjoyed a 13% rise in like-for-like sales for December 2012.

The group, which has eight sites in total, saw net sales of £715,000 over the period, with a 25% increase in like-for-like food sales.

Grand Union said the rise in sales was mainly driven by increased pre-orders of corporate groups in its Paddington and Farringdon sites, which recorded 24% and 21% like-for-like growth respectively.

A spokesman for the firm said: "New Year's Eve proved to be equally popular as last year, with pre-booked ticket sales increasing by 12% on 2011. There was however a reduced walk-in footfall due to the weather, but this did not dampen the festive spirit!"
