H&M Jan comparable sales fall less than expected

STOCKHOLM, Feb 15 (Reuters) - Swedish budget fashion retailer Hennes & Mauritz said on Friday its like-for-like sales fell for a fourth straight month in January, by 4 percent in local currencies from a year earlier.

The mean forecast in a Reuters poll of analysts had been for a 5 percent drop.

Total sales, which also includes sales in stores open less than a year, were up 5 percent, matching a preliminary figure given previously by H&M. (Reporting by Anna Ringstrom)
