Guinness Peat, the listed vehicle which owns Coats, reported a 10 per cent fall in like-for-like sales at fashion unit Craft for the three months ending 27 October .Guinness Peat blamed the “impact of lower demand for fashion handknitting products” in the US and Europe as one of the reasons for the fall.However, a pickup in handknitting sales in the US helped make third-quarter sales better than the second quarter, it said, adding that the outlook for Crafts was mixed.The company said that Craft’s performance was expected to improve on the first half of 2014, “driven primarily by increased sales and cost reduction initiatives, however trading will remain challenging”.The Coats business dates back to the 1750s and it also has an industrial division, which makes the cotton used in the humble tea bag.Sales at its industrials group – which also makes products such as zips – rose five per cent on a like-for-like basis, helping to cushion the drop at Crafts, leaving overall group sales flat.Guinness Peat was formed from a spin out of Irish investment bank Guinness Mah on in the early 1990s.

The retail giant spun off its Australian and New Zealand operations into a separate business last year to focus on its growing international business.Westfield’s joint chief executives Peter Lowy and Steven Lowy said the benefits were already being seen in the progress being made to its $11.4bn development program.“This year we expect to commence $2.5bn of projects, having already commenced $1.6bn of redevelopments to-date in 2015 including Century City in Los Angeles and UTC in San Diego, with the expansion at Westfield London expected to commence later this year,” they said yesterday. Westfield posted $465.9m profits for the six months to 30 June, with no comparable figure for last year when it had yet to split from its domestic operation Scentre. The firm said the performance of the two UK centres, Westfield London and Stratford City, “remains strong” with the centres now generating annual sales of £2.1bn from over 70m annual customer visits.

Speaking today, one told us: “There is a serious problem up here with traffic and parking – overtaking bays with no parking signs used for parking.“The ambulance couldn’t get in the lane and residents had to open gates to allow cars in to there yards to free access. “We have contacted the council numerous times as this is a serious safety issue.“Given the current situation with COVID-19, it is impossible to practice social distancing with the volume of people visiting Glenbarrow since the schools were closed.”This article has been updated to state that it was coast guard helicopter from Waterford and not an air ambulance that was called to the scene.

Buy It! Princess Diana’s humble little 1981 Ford Escort is up for auction An engagement gift from Prince Charles, the car is being sold by a Princess Di “superfan” advertisement What is it? A really neat way for Nissan Canada’s marketing department to highlight the fact that, for the first time in its history, the Altima is available with all-wheel-drive. In fact, all Canadian-bound Altimas drive all four wheels.Why does it matter? “With the scarcity in the market of all-wheel drive configurations available on sedans, we wanted to make a statement to customers,” says Joni Paiva, president of Nissan Canada. “The Altima-te AWD sends a clear message to the market – our new Altima has the ability to conquer the harshest weather environments with the added confidence provided by standard Nissan Intelligent All-Wheel Drive.”So, while I’m not sure the Altima-te AWD itself “matters,” the fact that the Altima finally gets all-wheel-drive is important, Nissan hoping it will stem the tide of consumers leaving sedans for crossover and SUVs. Besides, while the ‘-te’ may not matter, it sure does garner attention. ‹ Previous Next › Trending in Canada We encourage all readers to share their views on our articles using Facebook commenting Visit our FAQ page for more information. RELATED TAGSMontrealMontreal Auto ShowNews I mean, anytime you add Dominator truck tracks to all four wheels of anything — Nissan has previously done so to the Rogue — it’s pretty much a spectacle. Add said tread — 1,220 millimetres long, 750-mm tall and 380-mm wide — to a sedan jack it up some 80 millimetres and add some positively gargantuan 180-mm fender flares and you definitely have, well, a monster car. When is it coming? This is the only one Nissan Canada is making so you can’t even if you wanted to.Should you buy it? Again, Nissan ain’t selling them, but I am sure if you’ve got a 50 large or so burning a hole in your pocket — not counting the $27,998 Nissan Canada wants for a new 2019 Altima — Motorsports in Action, who built the them for Nissan Canada, would probably be more than happy to build you one too.
