Fashion leader Hennes & Mauritz (H&M) has reported static March sales, hampered by the late Easter and unseasonably cold weather.

 

Same-store sales dipped 8% in March, H&M said, admitting Central European sales were "very weak".

 

H&M recently reported a 21% jump in first-quarter profit to EUR193m (US$231.91m).

 

The company eyes the Greek market as one of its next expansion targets, with an Athens launch planned for spring next year.
