'Loblaw Companies Ltd. said Wednesday its first-quarter profit was up almost 40 per cent compared to the same period last year. Taking into account a tax ruling that went in its favour as well as other adjustments, its net earnings were up 17.1 per cent to $459 million...

'...The company’s drugstore sales were up 5.4 per cent to $3.4 billion overall.

'However, food sales revenue also increased, by 2.4 per cent to $8.7 billion, and adjusted gross profit for the retail division as a whole increased by 5.9 per cent to $3.7 billion.'
