WHSmith takes Omicron hit but bosses remain confident

The Independent says WHSmith has revealed that sales at its stores remain below pre-pandemic levels and those at travel locations including airports and railway stations fell in the final month of 2021 as the Omicron variant of coronavirus spread.

Bosses said high street stores have seen improvements compared with 2019 levels, although these fell in the first two weeks of January.

Chief executive Carl Cowling said: “Looking ahead, although we are seeing a small impact from the Omicron variant, we anticipate a resumption in the recovery of our travel markets over the coming months.
