Bernie Brooks, head of Myer, said that early sales of holiday related items have been positive, offering optimism following a decline in first-quarter sales. "What we look at firstly is toys, and they are up on last year, we then look at Christmas trimm, we then look at cosmetic gift packs and fragrance packs, hampers, and all of those are up from a couple of per cent to double-digit growth," Brooks said.
