AB Foods says a fifth of Primark store space closed

March 16 (Reuters) - Associated British Foods said on Monday the coronavirus pandemic has forced it to close 20% of Primark's store space, accounting for almost a third of the chain's sales.

The company said it was too early to provide earnings guidance for the rest of the year.
