Brazil retailer GPA aims for stable gross profit margins

SAO PAULO, Oct 31 (Reuters) - GPA SA , Brazil’s biggest retailer, aims to maintain its current gross profit margin, executives told analysts on Friday, suggesting the company had ended a cycle of cutting prices to boost sales during an economic downturn.

GPA’s gross margin slipped to 25.7 percent in the third quarter from 26.2 percent a year earlier, the company said in a quarterly earnings report on Thursday.
