LONDON (Reuters) - Primark-owner AB Foods said tougher lockdown measures in Britain and Ireland would result in an estimated sales loss of 650 million pounds ($887 million) this financial year, up from its previous estimate of 430 million pounds.
It said on Thursday that as of 1 January, 253 Primark stores would be temporarily closed, representing 64% of its total retail selling space.
