Retailer, which has reported halving of interim profits, also wants more women in technician jobs
(Reuters) -Bike and motor parts retailer Halfords said its full-year earnings would be at the bottom end of forecasts after interim profit halved partly due to higher costs and as Britons spend less on non-essentials amid a cost of living crisis. Soaring prices of everything from energy to food are forcing British consumers to curtail purchases as they try to make ends meet, while businesses are looking to rein-in costs and stay afloat by wooing customers with offers and discounts. Halfords said on Wednesday its recently launched loyalty programme has been performing well but with rising input costs, it had to "inevitably" pass some costs on to customers for certain products, without specifying which ones.
