Like-for-like sales behind at Ultimate Leisure

Northern bar and nightclub operator Ultimate Leisure Group has announced that current trading is in line with expectations, with group sales in the 22 weeks to Dec 3 up 4% year-on-year.

However, the company's like-for-like sales in the same period were down 3%, according to the statement released by chairman Mark Jones at yesterday's Annual General Meeting.

Jones said the group's refurbishment programme is on track for completion by Easter 2007 and so far 22 bars have received investment and the performance post refurbishment, supported by enhanced marketing spend, has been encouraging.

Ultimate runs the Coyote Wild chain of bars.
