Which Bulletin Board Moron said we couldn’t tip a waiter? J Sainsbury (SBRY) has issued a Q3 trading statement. There were Christmas sales changes due to smaller gatherings but despite this and, even after forgoing business rates relief, it still expects to report underlying pre-tax profit of “at least” £330 million in the financial year to March 2021.
