The Scotsman - - Business -

WH Smith has con­firmed that trad­ing fig­ures for the full year will be in line with ex­pec­ta­tions as the re­tailer again pointed to a strong per­for­mance at air­ports and rail­way sta­tions. The sta­tioner and newsagent has con­tin­u­ously said that un­der-pres­sure high street sales are be­ing off­set by its grow­ing chain of travel shops, and yes­ter­day in a trad­ing up­date added that it has opened its first three stores in Italy in Rome’s Fi­u­mi­cino and Ci­ampino air­ports, and one in Turin air­port.
