The results for the quarter built on the very strong performances achieved in the two prior corresponding periods in the 2016 and 2015 financial years, where total store sales grew 11.5 per cent and 11.8 per cent, respectively.

BANZ Managing Director Michael Schneider said the sales growth achieved was pleasing, particularly given the varying market conditions during the quarter.

During the quarter, one replacement warehouse and one replacement trade centre were opened. A further 17 sites were under construction at the end of March 2017.
