Total sales in the 16 weeks to 4 January 2008, including Blueheath, were up 1.3%
on the same period last year. Like-for-like non-tobacco sales were up 2.4% and
like-for-like tobacco sales declined by 7.9% due to the ban on smoking in public
places. Sales, stock, profits and net debt remain in line with management
expectations.

'This is a solid performance in a challenging market and Booker continues to
make good progress.'
