The owner of Penneys is going to open more of the clothing stores after praising the "strength" of sales following Covid lockdowns.

It's planning more than a hundred new shops, mostly in mainland and eastern Europe, over the next five years bringing the total to 530.

The parent firm says its pre-tax profits fell by 1 percent to just over a billion euro in the year to the middle of September.
