JD Sports set for big outdoor loss

Press Association

Retailer JD Sports Fashion has warned its Blacks and Millets outdoor division is set for another "substantial" loss, despite a return to sales growth.

The division, which made a loss of £14.9 million in its last financial year to February, had to sacrifice margins in order to achieve the positive like-for-like sales figure, with the return to profitability still a "work in progress".%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%
