Game Group like for likes down a smidge

But that's good, OK?

Game Group today reported like-for-like sales for the
21 weeks to 28 June 2003 were down 2.9 per cent, while overall sales were up 4.1 per cent.

But the UK's biggest computer games retailer says it is doing better than expected and is continuing to win market share. In the same period last year, like-for-like sales were up 34 per cent, riding on the back of the Xbox and Gamecube launches.

Game released its trading statement today to accompany its Annual General Meeting. ®'
